The bulk of the collection comprises correspondence (1963-87) from Enid Hilton in California to her friend Margaret Musgrave in England. The letters are mainly about her current life and interests, her work in America, everyday news, and, occasionally, her memories of Eastwood and of D.H. Lawrence. There is also a small series of letters to M. Musgrave from the Lawrence researcher R. Spencer concerning his meetings with E. Hilton in California.
A number of undated literary materials by Hilton (poems and lectures) are also present. These include reminiscences about William Hopkin, D.H. Lawrence, Alice Dax and other members of the Eastwood circle.
Biographical material about her consists chiefly of newscuttings from local papers in America, from 1957-77. This is complemented by newsprint material relating to Enid's father, William Hopkin, and D.H. Lawrence, 1972-85.
A series of photographs of Ukiah, California, and other parts of the state, with pictures of Enid's family and friends, is also included.
