Kalugin submitted more than 500 suggestions during this period, and almost single- handedly brought his office to national prominence in the Suggestions Program. The scrapbooks contain award certificates, letters of commendation, and records, samples, and reviews of his suggestions. Included here are a scrapbook of thank-you notes from a visiting grammar school class and
Published material consists of books, literary magazines, and assorted other items. The Tape recording is of unspecified content.
Writings consists of handwritten manuscripts (holographs), typescripts, and published items; the material includes novels, poetry, short stories, criticism, and more.
