It includes a videotape of a women's karate class, materials probably written by Ruthchild, and correspondence about her writings. Most of the papers in Series II are from Ruthchild's work at Cardinal Cushing College or Cambridge-Goddard. The series includes correspondence and other materials about her employment; syllabi, reading lists, and lecture notes; student applications, papers, exams, and course evaluations; and some materials from professional organizations with which she was affiliated.
