A small quantity of correspondence includes letters from James Gould Cozzens, Upton Sinclair, and James Thurber and memoranda circulated in the NBC continuity department. Also present are photographs; contracts; book reviews written for the Chicago Sun-Times; articles about Rhymer; and a copy of The Small House Halfway Up the Next Block (1972), Mrs. Rhymer's book about the Vic and Sade program.
