Farley, Arthur Hopkins, Otto Kahn, Groucho and Harpo Marx, Adolphe Menjou, William Saroyan, Alfred E. Smith, Henry L. Stimson, John Steinbeck, Booth Tarkington, Oswald Garrison Villard, William Allen White, Alexander Woollcott, and others. There are scripts (some annotated) for seventeen produced and unproduced titles for stage, screen, and television including THE BUTTER AND EGG MAN (1925), THE LATE GEORGE APLEY (1944), THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER (1939), and several other plays on which Kaufman collaborated with Marc Connelly, Ruth Goodman Goetz, Leueen MacGrath, Morrie Ryskind, Howard Teichmann, and other playwrights.

The remainder of the collection consists of miscellany such as notes pertaining to OF THEE I SING (1931), and scrapbooks of clippings concerning DULCY (1921), THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER, THE SENATOR WAS DISCREET, and other productions, 1912-1939. One letter pertains to Howard Teichmann's biography of Kaufman.
