Printed material consists of clippings, eight exhibition announcements and catalogs including three from Miller's memorial exhibitions, a 1967 program for "I Am the Way," miscellaneous printed material concerning Nancy Boas' book The Society of Six: California Colorists, a 1950 brochure for the Art Students League and a picture postcard of St. Michael Church, Brookville, Indiana.
Artwork consists of two ink figure sketches, and photographs includes a group photograph of Art Students League instructors, among them Kelly, Robert Ward Johnson, Louis Bouche, and John Carroll, and three photographs of works of art.
