The Research Correspondence series contains correspondence between Conrad and potential sources for information including historians and librarians in the various communities in which Tubman lived or operated, as well as national and international repositories (e.g., Library of Congress and National Archives and British Museum). The Research Notes series makes up the bulk of the collection. These materials include notes taken from publications published during Tubman's life. Featured articles are from newspapers such as the "Liberator" and "Boston Commonwealth." The Publishers' Correspondence series contains correspondence between Conrad and potential publishers of the Tubman book. This series illustrates the resistance in the 1940s to publishing literature related to African Americans and their experience.
The Statements and Interviews series consists of notes and transcripts of interviews with people who knew or worked with Harriet Tubman and members of her family. The Programs, Newspapers, Clippings and Pamphlets and Miscellaneous Materials series includes materials related to Tubman as well as other documents associated with the research for the publication. Programs for the unveiling of the Tubman memorial tablet in Auburn, New York are within this series.
The Manuscripts and Typescripts series contains various drafts and final versions for the articles and books about Harriet Tubman which developed out of the research presented in the preceding six series.
