The Ober files contain correspondence with clients and with editors, publishers, and other agents concerning clients' work; occasional manuscripts of stories, poems, chapter outlines of novels, and revisions/insertions for clients' work; and copies of some contracts. For the most part, the files of the London agencies contain inter-agency correspondence about clients' work, though letters from the authors, themselves, frequently appear.
Authors with major files in the Archives include Richard Adams, William Barrett, Catherine Drinker Bowen, Pearl Buck, Walter Edmonds, John Gunther, Langston Hughes, John Bartlow Martin, Muriel Spark, and Philip Wylie. Literary estate correspondence for F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner is also sizable.
