Also contains the administrative files of editors Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, which include correspondence concerning subscriptions and advertising; letters from Ezra Pound; and letters from John Quinn, a financial backer of the magazine and the publication's lawyer in the case concerning the government's seizure of the issue containing James Joyce's Ulysses. The collection contains a small amount of layout materials for various issues; photographs and reproductions, usually published in the magazine; and newsclippings (1920-1964) about Anderson, Heap, and the Little Review.
