Collection consists of correspondence and author files of the Macmillan Company.

General correspondence, 1892-1914, contains letters from authors, publishers, booksellers, paper manufacturers, literary agents, as well as internal correspondence from editors, agents, field representatives, and academic book reviewers. Much of the correspondence deals with the publication of scholarly works and textbooks in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and religion. Foreign correspondence, 1898-1914, includes letters to and from publishers and literary agents, mostly in Great Britain. Correspondence with Macmillan & Co. in London, 1891-1915, concerns publishing plans, negotiations for British and American editions of various works, copyright matters, etc. George Platt Brett, Sr.'s letterbooks consist of his outgoing letters from 1889 to 1907. Other letterbooks are of Kate Stephens, Children's Dept., 1898-1900, and the Subscription Dept., 1901-1902. Author files, 1894-1960, contain personal and business correspondence of Macmillan's major authors, their literary agents, legal counsel, and families with the Bretts and Macmillan editors. In addition to letters, the files often include memoranda, contracts, typescripts, press releases and publicity materials, legal records, press clippings, or photographs. The most extensive files in this series concern the publication of works such as Gone With the Wind, Forever Amber and the Cyclopedia of American Agriculture.

Other records consist of letters, 1892-1959, from prominent persons and pamphlets and poems, 1912-1930, printed for copyright purposes.
