The majority of the materials are related to events in San Antonio, though there are some programs from Miss McGown's travels, including items from Houston, New York City, London, and Paris. The collection also includes some personal correspondence, two scrapbooks, a pressed fern book, and a sketching purse. Some material is dated from after Miss McGown's death in 1965, and was added to the collection by an unknown individual.
