Personal papers include biographical and genealogical information, interviews, correspondence with friends and family, photographs, and a copy of his FBI file and lengthy refutation of its allegations. There are also many love letters to and from his second wife. Other correspondence includes letters from Max Ascoli, Carroll Binder, Aloïs Dersoe, Ralph Edwards, A.R. Holcombe, Wesley Maurer, Helen Rogers Reid, Dinah and Vincent Sheean, and DeWitt Wallace, as well as many other individuals of interest for their autograph value. The photographs include formal and informal portraits, as well as documentation of his career activities, particularly his coverage of the Greek-Albanian front during World War II.
Pertaining to Stowe's career as a newspaperman are scrapbooks of clippings from the New York Herald-Tribune and the Chicago Daily News and loose clippings, copies of his post-war column for the New York Post Syndicate, and some draft stories. Records of freelance magazine work include draft and printed articles submitted to Argosy, The Reporter, and Reader's Digest. Radio scripts include wartime commentaries for ABC and post-war analyses sponsored by the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers Union that were broadcast on MBS. The collection includes limited drafts of published books, but there are reviews and reader correspondence for all titles. Supplementing the writings are unpublished memoirs and an autobiographical novel and many notebooks and journals about his coverage of the Spanish Civil War; the Russo-Finnish War; the Greek-Albanian front, 1939-1940; post-war Europe; and his travels as a writer for Reader's Digest. This section includes interviews with Aristide Briand, Gamal Abdel Nasser, John Pershing, Raymond Poincaré, the Shah of Iran, and Walter Ulbrich. Other documented aspects of his career include course outlines and teaching materials from his tenure at the Journalism School of the University of Michigan, transcripts and outlines for public lectures, and reports (1950-1954) prepared as a director of Radio Free Europe.
Of special note is a group of four photographs of Charles Lindbergh, with Stowe and other individuals, taken in Paris in 1928. One of these images showing Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis has been autographed.
