Nine sketchbooks contain drawings and preliminary sketches of nudes, figure studies, and portraits. Several sketchbooks were titled by the artist; some are annotated. Interspersed among the pages are loose sketches, notes, and clippings. A sketchbook contains photographic copies of Simon's drawings of the U.S. Army Corp's landing at Leyte in the Philippines; other drawings depict Simon's observations of the soldiers' activities aboard ship and in the field, preparing foxholes and dispensing medical care to the Filipinos.
Sketchbooks are arranged in chronological order.
