The collection contains an obituary of Dr. Evelyn Bush, two typescript stories by Edward Ellis Bush and an unfinished autobiography of Bush, which he started shortly before he died. There are also several lantern slides, presumably from Dr. Bush's practice, which show men and women doing various back exercises.
