Correspondence (1832-1891) of Edward McCrady (1802-1892) concerns the religious instruction of slaves, Episcopal Church affairs (including racial issues), missionary work with Muslims, legal matters, politics and elections, secession, the Civil War defenses of Charleston (S.C.), William H. Trescot's political career, family and personal matters, the relation of science and religion, and other matters. Correspondents include J.W. Miles, William H. Trescot, Edward McCrady, Jr., Louis Agassiz, and many others.
Writings (1844-1877) include manuscripts and printed pamphlets authored by Edward McCrady. There are also other printed materials concerning South Carolina Episcopal Diocese Conventions (ca. 1869-1880s) and Episcopal Church affairs, as well as notes, letters, and other items. Receipts (1834-1887) are for taxes, groceries, subscriptions, donations, and other expenses.

One group of documents consists of the family and estate papers (1787-1884) of members of the Johnson family, including U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Johnson and his wife, children, brothers, and cousins. These include correspondence, property records, powers of attorney, a will, and other items. Other legal documents include wills (1823-1874) of McCrady's legal clients (including Hagar Johnson, a free woman of color), marriage settlements, opinions, briefs, decrees, agreements, and related correspondence.
Legal journals (1841-1886), many indexed, contain daily notes on conferences with clients or other lawyers, court cases, correspondence, and personal matters, and include some personal cash accounts.
