The collection also contains manuscripts, typescripts, and correspondence with Lilith writers and readers, including material from Jewish women worldwide who were interested in reporting on local news and culture for the magazine. Administrative files show the operations of Lilith and contain meeting minutes, mission statements, press releases, and fan mail.
