The papers of Dorothy Day contain her private and family correspondence (mostly incoming), appointment calendars and notebooks, diaries and retreat notes, manuscripts of more than thirty articles and ten books, correspondence and press accounts concerning speaking engagements and other public activities, articles she wrote for non-Catholic Worker publications, and writings about her. Notable correspondents include Daniel and Philip Berrigan, Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Eileen Egan, James Forest, Ammon Hennacy, Thomas Merton, and Gordon Zahn.
Included in the records of the New York City Catholic Worker community are the back files of "The Catholic Worker" newspaper and other publications; letters to the editor and other general correspondence; financial and legal records; correspondence and published information documenting the NYCW's involvement in the labor and peace movements; and records of the community's houses and farms.
The surviving papers of Peter Maurin, including manuscripts and scattered correspondence, form another series in the collection. Other members of the movement whose papers are held include Charles Butterworth, Frank Cordaro, William Gauchat, Ammon Hennacy, Michael Kirwan, Nina Polcyn Moore, Deane Mowrer, Tina Sipula, Brian Terrell, Jacques Travers, and Stanley Vishnewski. In addition to the New York Catholic Worker, communities in Alderson, West Virginia; Bloomington, Illinois; Chicago, Illinois; Des Moines, Iowa; Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; St. Louis, Missouri; Syracuse, New York; and Washington, D.C. have made substantial donations of archival material. CW communities in existence at present contribute their newsletters and other publications to the collection, and information is available on many of the former houses as well.
