A folder on paintings records the Stevenses' ownership of a Rouen Cathedral painting by Claude Monet as well as other works of art they owned. The Stevenses' financial records are organized within Office Files. Several folders contain cards and letters sent to Stevens while he was convalescing after his triple bypass heart surgery in 1981. Carbon copies of Stevens's responses are attached to the correspondence. Material on Stevens's memorial service includes the invitation, attendee lists, guest books, and planning documents.
