Hayne and other writings; family matters; his personal finances and the estate of his father Theodore D. Jervey, Sr.; land transactions and business interests; legal affairs; art; and other matters. Among the correspondents are Jervey family members, politicians, and historians, including Benjamin Tillman, Lewis S. Johnstone, and William H. Thomas.
Legal papers of Jervey as an attorney and judge include dockets, correspondence, legal journals, court documents, and abstracts of title. Financial records include Jervey's legal and personal accounts (1884-1945) and a ledger (1892-1930) for his father's estate. Organizational papers relating to the Charleston Library Society, South Carolina Historical Society, College of Charleston, Charleston League of Nations Society, and Charleston County Democratic Party include correspondence, financial records, journals, and membership lists.
Writings include essays, pamphlets, memoirs, poems, short stories, a draft of an unpublished novel, speeches, and fragments of a manuscript of the novel, "The Elder Brother."
