The correspondence consists of letters from colleagues and acquaintances of Dorothy Parker, American author, essayist, and poet, and letters with Meade's publisher. Among the cataloged correspondents are Saul Bellow, Malcolm Cowley, E.B. White, and Richard Wilbur. The manuscripts consist of two drafts of Meade's book, accompanied by hard bound and paperback versions of the book. The subject files are arranged in two series: chronological, following her draft outline for the book; and topical, in alphabetical order. These research files contain photocopies of correspondence and writings of Dorothy Parker, a Parker bibliography, and related literary and biographical clippings and articles. The notebooks consist of a research draft event outline for the book. The illustrations are primarily mock-ups for the book and drawings not used in the book. Photographs consist of both those used in the book and those not included. The 56 audio cassettes are of Meade's interviews with people who knew Dorothy Parker, along with selective transcripts and a related log.
1992 Addition: A file of photographs and brochures relating to the 1992 commemorative stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service has been added.
1994 Addition: Printed materials about the Parker Centenary have been added.
