The Miscellaneous series includes material not related to the other series in the Derso and Kelen Collection and contains photographs depicting the artists as well as some photoreproductions of their works. Of interest is a photograph of Derso and Kelen sitting with Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt as she admires the drawing of herself by Derso and Kelen that appeared in the United Nations Sketchbook. There is also a tattered copy of Modern Caricaturists by H. R. Westwood published in 1932 by L. Dickson, Ltd. that includes a chapter on Derso and Kelen. Another item in this series is a guest book from an exhibition in 1976.
This 'Biographical Materials' subseries contains information about Derso and Kelen's exhibitions in Europe (London, 1934 and Budapest, 1976), business dealings with book and newspaper publishers, and extensive information on the disposition of the Derso and Kelen body of work by Betty Kelen. There are also fairly complete inventory lists of artworks compiled by Kelen and a list with commentary by a New York appraiser.
