In February of 1924, Douglas requested that Mrs. Blaine criticize his pamphlet, which the Association for Peace Education was planning to publish. Douglas was a professor at the University of Chicago.

In the first folder is an address by Paul H. Douglas, delivered to the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations on 1936 April 3, entitled “Impressions of Italy at War.”

In the second folder is an address entitled “Securing Social Security,” given on 1937 March 7 at the New England Church Forum Thorne Hall, Chicago.

In April of 1940, Douglas asked Mrs. Blaine to contribute toward the purchase of Alexander Portnoff's bust of John Dewey to be placed in the University of Chicago.

A letter, 1941 September 16, requests Mrs. Blaine to give financial aid so that Illinois would not go isolationist in the coming election. He was especially worried that no suitable opponent could be found among the Democrats to run against the Republican Brooks if he were nominated.

A letter, 1942 April 8, reveals that Mrs. Blaine contributed to Douglas' campaign fund for United States Senator. Douglas lost in the primary and enlisted in the United States Marines. He still insisted that if the Republicans swept the fall election they would cause obstruction in the Congress. A letter, 1951 March 23, while Douglas was in the Senate, asks Mrs. Blaine to support the food for India bills that were in Congress at the time.

In August of 1948, she again wrote Mrs. Blaine, this time for a contribution to campaign for her husband's election to the Senate.

The same letter also reveals that Doyle requested aid for the cause of spiritualism, in this case for the support of one of his colleagues, Vale Owen, whom he called “a saint on earth.” Later letters reveal that Mrs. Blaine at least considered giving Owen aid.
