The Marjorie McGown Collection consists largely of ephemera from San Antonio society and cultural events between 1909 and 1970, including materials related to the American Red Cross during World War I, the 1931 San Antonio Bicentennial, the Junior League, the Order of the Alamo, art exhibits, ballets, musical events, operas, and plays. 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.
