Correspondence of St. Cyr with many well-known theatrical personalities. The bulk of the correspondence is from Tommaso Salvini (1829-1916), the Italian playwright, and consists of 118 letters. There are manuscripts of several interviews and essays intended for magazine publication, and her translations of two plays by Roberto Bracco. There are also many contracts and documents relating to translation rights and the production of her plays; a group of 81 autographs collected by St. Cyr; and three boxes of published plays, chiefly Italian, signed by Dircé St. Cyr. Many of the plays are by Roberto Bracco who signed and inscribed them to St. Cyr. There is one scrapbook of theatrical memorabilia, programs, playbills, and related clippings.
