The Songwriting subseries consists of original works by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, arrangements and transcriptions of traditional ballads and folk songs primarily from the United Kingdom and the United States, and unsolicited original songs sent to MacColl and Seeger from folk song enthusiasts. The subseries also contains a variety of traditional and folk music resources collected by MacColl and Seeger throughout their careers that was used to inform their songwriting and research. These materials include photocopies of the Percy Grainger English Folk Song notebooks, transcripts of traditional folk songs from the United Kingdom, and photocopies of broadsides from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. There is also an extensive collection of materials relating to late 20th century women's issues.
