Subseries 7J: Memorabilia, 1861-1965

Subseries 7J: Memorabilia, includes invitations, programs, place cards, magazine covers, keys to cities, and other items that Stevenson designated for inclusion in his scrapbooks, but never were.

A guest book records visitors to Stevenson's various residences, including the Illinois governor's mansion, Libertyville farm, and his suite in the Waldorf Astoria.
