This collection consists of letters, manuscripts, documents, clipings, photographs, and printed items.

There are interesting items regarding Cecile's education and a variety of items having to do with the extended family. There is a album, compiled by Cecile of celebrated actors and musicials, and a odd volume titled "Thru the Rye with the Harold Lehmans" chronicling the before and after effects of alcohol (humorous).
