The fonds consists of biographical material, correspondence, drafts, and versions of Dorothy Livesay's writings of all genres. Over half of the Livesay fonds consists of papers that are strictly non-literary yet directly related to her life and work. This material is divided into five categories: autobiographical, biographical, bibliographical, business papers regarding her writing and her personal business papers. The remainder of the manuscript collection consists of plays, reviews, poems, short stories, essays, talks and addresses, and memoirs. The photograph collection contains pictures of family and friends, places and buildings, and Dorothy Livesay herself. The tape collection consists of conversations between Livesay and others, interviews, poetry readings, radio broadcasts, music, and memoirs.
