Interviews were conducted between 1983-1988. The collection includes the production files for Holtzberg's book, The Lost World of the Craft Printer (University of Illinois Press, 1992); correspondence with folklorists Archie Green and Judith McCulloh, and notes from meetings with Holtzberg's dissertation advisors at the University of Pennsylvania -- Henry Glassie, Ray Birdwhistell, and with Ken Goldstein, whom she interviewed about his experience in the printing industry. The collection also includes two journals written while Maggie Holtzberg was a student from 1972-1973 at the Trailside Country School, based in Killington, Vermont.
