Series II (1 linear ft.) contains programs, brochures, award certificates, newspaper and magazine clippings, reports, and meeting minutes. Subjects include the National Medal of Science, the Wolf Foundation Prize, and the Nobel Prize.
Series III (5 linear ft.) contains McClintock's outlines, research, and drafts for articles, books, and lectures. The majority of this series is comprised of lectures.
Series IV (4.5 linear ft.) contains articles, notes, reports, and papers written by colleagues and students of McClintock. The series is arranged alphabetically by author and then by title. Also included are notes that McClintock took about works by others.
Series V (55 linear ft.) contains loose notes, notebooks, card files, and numerous photographs and lantern slides of maize. There is no folder listing for this series. Because this series documents specific experiments with maize in great technical detail, the folders have been left in the original order in which they were boxed from McClintock's laboratory file cabinets at Cold Spring Harbor. The boxes have been labeled with the cabinet number and drawer number of the file cabinets in McClintock's laboratory. The notebooks are interspersed with the loose notes in the order in which McClintock arranged them. The card files are mainly culture cards for maize samples which McClintock studied at Cold Spring Harbor. Many of the prints and slides are probably photographs of these maize samples.
Series VI (1.5 linear ft.) contains prints and negatives. Some of the prints are illustrations from articles about maize genetics and others are prints of McClintock herself.
