The travel diaries of Margaret Shurtleff's mother-in-law, Sarah Ann Keegan Shurtleff record her thoughts about people and places she encountered abroad. There are also Keegan family correspondence; handbound volumes written by Sarah Shurtleff's daughter, Gertrude Hope Shurtleff, an amateur poet, artist, and writer; photos of family members and of places visited; papers about and sketches by the sculptor, Augustus St. Gaudens, a relative of Elizabeth Nichols; and letters, photos, and journal entries of Helen (Mrs. Ernest W.) Shurtleff concerning World War I relief work in France.
