All writings are by Tworkov. Documentation of children's books consist of the manuscript and royalty statements for Tigers Don't Bite; and the contract, reviews, correspondence and royalty statements for The Camel Who Took a Walk.
The notes on index cards may possibly be points for class discussions. An undated notebook includes miscellaneous notes, an idea for a student exercise, and musings on the "elite." The volume dated 1956-1957 contains teaching notes and project assignments. Also found are sound recordings of lectures given by Tworkov on sound tape reels.
Additional writings are found in Tworkov's sketchbooks (Series 9). Volume 22 contains poems and notes, and there are calculations in volumes 24-25 that may relate to experiments with diagonal compositions.
This series has been partially scanned. Blank pages in notebooks have not been scanned.
