The collection consists of correspondence, two scrapbooks and other ephemeral material related to Gebelein's association with the Johns Hopkins University.
The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century. Much of the collection is oriented toward the avant-garde, so even the 18th-century material tends to be literature of the margins. It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
This collection contains a 1913 photograph of Rupert Brooke, a poet famous for his war sonnets who died in World War I.
Walt Whitman (1819-1892) was an American poet and writer. The collection consists of thirty photographic portraits of Walt Whitman from 1854 to 1889, half of which are duplicates. All are photo service prints, stamped "Culver Pictures" or "Culver Service" on the reverse.
