A photograph of McCarthy in earlier years (undated), most likely taken around 1979 for publicity purposes, is also included. Final items in the collection are a press release, dated January, 1987 and a letter of Willa M. Perlman announcing the publication of McCarthy's memoir, How I Grew also in January, 1987.
