Series I contains typescripts for the fifth volume of Harris' autobiography and The New Commandment as well as hand written and typescript versions of several short stories. Notes and fragments are also present for biographies of George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde.
The large Correspondence series is largely composed of personal letters to and from Harris, though many of Harris' business deals were tied up with personal matters and thus the letters are hard to classify. Correspondents of particular interest include Reginald Caton, Henry Davray, Helen O'Harris, George Bernard Shaw, Reginald Turner, and Louis Wilkinson. Some of the correspondence is written in French.
Series III, Personal Papers, is made up of account books, financial papers, legal documents, and passports.
The Helen (Nellie) O'Hara Harris series is made up of a few works by O'Hara and a great deal of correspondence, mostly to her. Her correspondents include many of the same people who wrote to her husband, as well as Harold Auer, Curtis Brown, Edward Root, Abe Tobin, and Lady Warwick.
The final series is made up of works and correspondence written by people associated with Harris.
