The ER contains scans of both scrapbooks and the memoir. Also included are images of 5 paintings by La Vern Frank-Rush ( Downtown, undated; Grocery Orders, 1942; Downtown Rooftops, undated; Railroad, circa 1938, and Midwest Factory, 1941); a watercolor ( Old Houses (from a Sioux City Alley), 1939); and a lithograph ( Window Shopping, 1942). The original artwork is not a part of the collection.
This ER is created from a CD-ROM, which is a digitized version of the collection, produced by Phyllis Wrynn, director of the Park Slope Art Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. The gallery specialises in the art of the WPA Federal Art Project and American mid-century art and design. Images in the ER do not completely reproduce the scrapbooks. For instance, although the complete script for The Shoe Bears is found in volume 2, the entire play does not appear in the ER.
