The majority of this collection consists of the handwritten and typed poetry of Martha Carpenter Miller. While the bulk of the collection is Miller’s poetry, it also contains a notebook and ten textbooks from Mrs. Miller’s school days at Marshall College, a photo of her 1898 graduating class, her 1899 marriage certificate to William Miller, and materials relating to her religious activity, including four copies of the 1910 The Church Advocate and Holiness Banner from Fort Scott, Kansas and editions of The Converted Catholic Evangelist: A Protestant Missionary Magazine from the years 1911-1914 in which some of her early writings (not poetry) were published.
