The collection consists of correspondence, programs and other printed material, receipts, newspaper clippings, and broadsides. The correspondence is mainly business letters to Leroy Summerfield Edwards about his work. Much of the Association of the Army of Northern Virginia correspondence concerns the 1878 yellow fever epidemic in New Orleans and the request for aid by the Regiment of the Orlean Artillery. There are several family letters, some written to Edwards from his parents while he served in the Civil War (12th Virginia Infantry, Co. E), and one written by Edwards while he was a prisoner at Elmira (NY) Prison Camp. The other material in the collection relates to the Association of the Army of Northern Virginia, YMCA, Civil War, Randolph-Macon College, Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity, Piedmont and Arlington Life Insurance Company, and politics.
