The Grace W. Gray papers consist of correspondence, course records, writings, memorabilia, biographical information, and a photograph. The materials in this collection relate chiefly to Gray's years as a student at Mount Holyoke College, 1941-1945. In letters to her family she discusses her studies (particularly in zoology) classmates, social activities, faculty, visiting lecturers, horseback riding, parties, dances, food, her jobs on campus, and College traditions such as Mountain Day, Faculty Show, Founder's Day, freshman hazing, and Junior Show. She mentions College President Roswell Gray Ham and professors Elizabeth M. Boyd, Leonora Branch, Ann Haven Morgan, Christianna Smith, Kathryn F. Stein and others. She also refers to motion pictures that she has seen and to political issues, such as the campaign for U.S. president in 1944. Many letters reflect the impact of World War II on the College. She mentions air raid drills, rationing, blackouts, blood drives, members of the U.S. Naval Reserve Women's Reserve (WAVES) training on campus, farm work and a war stamp drive. Course records are for zoology and English classes and a physical education class. Materials include notebooks, an annotated laboratory manual, a project, papers (including one about canoeing), examinations, and microref4 slides that she prepared for histology courses. Writings in this collection consists of published articles by Gray dating from 1954-1975 which chiefly concern her scientific research on the effect of various drugs on intestinal muscle. Memorabilia, 1941-1945, consists of correspondence from College administrators to her parents concerning her course work, correspondence about her awards, and a receipt for her enrollment fee. Biographical information consists of two clippings about her from 1945 and an obituary dated 2001. The photograph is her Mount Holyoke senior portrait taken in 1945

Many of her examinations and papers include comments by Norma Adams, Viola Florence Barnes, Frederick H. Cramer, Constance Meadnis Saintonge, Nellie E. Sanchez Arce, Judith B. Welles and other professors. Her letters, chiefly addressed to her parents, discuss clothes, motion pictures, dating, food, course work, her daily schedule, visiting preachers in chapel, sports, and traditions such as hazing, Mountain Day, Faculty Show and Junior Show. She often refers to College President Roswell Gray Ham and to her professors, including Alzada Comstock and Henry Rox. Her letters also describe farm work at Mount Holyoke, members of the Women's Naval Reserve (WAVES) training on campus, restrictions on food and train travel, and other aspects of life during World War II. Her letters frequently mention her friends Lora Spaulding, Class of 1946, and Mary Ellen Padin, Class of 1947, and the collection includes a postcard from Padin, circa 1946, as well as two letters from another friend, Jean Bond (February 7 and March 17, 1945) which describe her life in London during World War II. Gilson's account book for 1942-1946 provides a detailed record of her income and expenses and includes titles of motion pictures that she saw and accounts for her purchase of cosmetics. The diary for September-October 1942 and calendars for 1943 and 1944 mention her daily activities and contain references to motion pictures, appointments, and food. Freshman hazing material includes a list of activities, the sign and three cornered hat Gilson wore, and her notes on the essays, poems and drawings she presented to the seniors. Other material in these papers consists of memorabilia such as a copy of the Porter Hall song from 1942, theatre programs from her trip to New York City with Lora Spaulding in October 1944, and newspapers from 1942-1947 which mention the 150th birthday of Mary Lyon and the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Also included in the memorabilia is a newspaper photograph of Gilson doing farm work at Mount Holyoke and two postcards written to her mother Ruth Caddell Gilson in 1912 from Edith W. Mank, Mount Holyoke Class of 1913. Rounding out the collection is a newspaper article from 1945 mentioning Gilson's graduation from Mount Holyoke and a photograph of her taken during her senior year
