Bingham's education as well as her professional life as a teacher of French and as a geographer, particularly of Peru, are thoroughly documented with correspondence, research notes, publications and other papers (1885-1929). Her carefully kept personal papers (journals, diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks) offer a minute and frank record of her life and times (1885-1967). The extensive papers on nature conservation (5 feet) are centered on her donation of a nature preserve in Maine and include her writings, maps, histories of the region, as well as financial and legal papers on the transfer of the property (1960). Prominent in her large correspondence (19 feet) are Rachel Carson, Bernard De Voto, Gilbert Grosvenor, William Dean Howells, Amy Lowell, Archibald MacLeish, George Herbert Palmer, Margaret Chase Smith, George W. Wickersham, Robert M. Yerkes and Stark Young. There is also a voluminous family correspondence. Included is also a small amount (2 feet) of the papers of her husband, Walter Van Dyke Bingham, an industrial psychologist, largely made up of his professional writings (1926-1952).
