Correspondence comprises the largest portion of the Papers of the Richard P. Newton Family and documents the daily lives of Richard Newton, Dorothy Speilman Newton, Lillian Boehm, and some of their friends. The collection also contains religious, legal, and genealogical documents, a pair of torpedo-shaped earrings, holiday cards, and photographs. Also included are issues of two military publications: Plans of the Day and Radio Press News from the USS George K. MacKenzie (DD-836). The correspondence focuses on domestic concerns and military life. The documents include certificates commemorating religious and school events, union membership, and military life. The majority of the photographs are not identified or dated. They consist of individual and group photographs and views taken from and on a ship, probably the USS George K. MacKenzie (DD-836) at sea.
