Includes letters written by Williams to various family members, local friends, and professional correspondents such as Denise Levertov; correspondence of his wife, Florence Herman Williams, with James Laughlin, of New Directions, and others; correspondence of Ruth Koehler with Charles Abbott, Harvey Breit, various persons at New Directions publishers, Donald Gallup, and others, concerning the Friends of Williams collection at Rutherford Free Public Library; local newspapers such as the Bergen Record and Rutherford Republican containing poems written by Williams and articles about him; information pertaining to his medical practice in Rutherford, particularly his speciality in family medicine and obstetrics; and items documenting Williams's legacy to the community, such as a scholarship established by Fairleigh Dickinson University in his honor.

Also includes Voice of America broadcast materials; information pertaining to the Pulitzer Prize and other awards won by Williams; correspondence and other papers of James Murray, a lawyer, regarding Williams's disagreement with the Library of Congress over the poetry consultant position and also Murray's organization of the poet's copyrights following his dispute with New Directions (which led to later affiliation with Random House); and many books and proofsheets, some of which were personally owned by Williams. Correspondents of Florence Williams include Kenneth Burke, Richard Johns, Robert Knoll, and Denise Levertov. Library of Congress correspondents of James F. Murray include Verner Clapp, Luther H. Evans, and L. Quincy Mumford.
