This series contains material written by Mary Andrews, including both handwritten and printed materials but excluding her diaries (see Series 2), notes and correspondence pertaining to her biography "Going it Alone" and other autobiographical material (see series ??), correspondence and draft correspondence (series 4), and personal newsletters (series 5-6).
The series includes first drafts of articles and addresses, completed short publications, fragmentary notes (names and contact details etc.), notes on sermons and addresses she had attended, annotated texts of varying length, and drafts of Deaconess House monthly reports.
The content of this series was separated in part from Mary's collection of personal letters received (see Series 1), and was otherwise collected piecemeal from miscellaneous unsorted paperwork distributed haphazardly throughout the collection. It is unknown if there was any original intended order to these latter papers (though it seems unlikely) or if the arrangement was an arbitrary decision by Archives Consultant Debra Leigo, who supervised the re-boxing of the collection in 2011.
