Series 7: Memorabilia, 1918-1967, is composed of various citations, certificates, degrees, awards that Dulles received throughout his lifetime. His passports, immunization records, various identification cards and military permits for travel in Europe document his activities as a government agent during turbulent times. Mrs. Dulles's passports plus a medal honoring her work with Russian refugees, are included here as well.
Series 8: Photographs, Audiovisual and Oversize Materials, circa 1845-1969 is arranged with photographs first, organized into portraits, family photos, honors and awards, then general photos. Each section is arranged chronologically therein. The audiovisual material is divided into audio tape and phonograph records, each arranged chronologically. Almost all the audio material was recorded after his tenure at CIA and captures luncheon speeches, television appearances, and award ceremonies, including the presentation of the National Security medal by President John F. Kennedy upon his retirement in 1961. The remaining items consist of various oversize and custom-boxed items that include photograph and scrapbook albums, a copy of Dulles's first book The Boer War (published when he was eight), as well as genealogical material, and a volume relating to Dulles's participation in the Three-Power Naval Conference.

The Allen W. Dulles Digital Files contain scanned images of professional correspondence, reports, lectures, and administrative papers. The Agency culled these documents from Dulles's home office immediately after his death in 1969 and they continue to maintain the originals. The Agency redacted the documents and provided PDF scans to Princeton University in Spring 2007. The collection spans Dulles's time as Chief of the Office of Strategic Services office in Bern, Switzerland during World War II, his work at the Central Intelligence Agency, and his retirement.
