    Materials in this series include correspondence, reports, speeches, press clippings, photographs, flyers, and posters.

Ruggles Smith. Other files include brief histories and descriptions of the origins and character of the University, awards ceremonies, guest lecturers and lectureship series, Brandeis songs, the construction of a bust of Louis D. Brandeis, and correspondence dealing with a wide range of subjects.
