The largest portion of the collection comprises Cafferty’s teaching materials, including course syllabi, class handouts and reading lists. Also included are urban planning policy materials, and archival material from alumnae of the School of Social Service Administration. The collection has been arranged into five series.

The series also contains finalized reports on Chicago urban planning projects.

Series III, School of Social Service Administration Materials, contains various materials and ephemera on the creation and documentation of the SSA from its inception in 1919 as the Chicago School of Civics and Philanthropy to its active alumni apparatus.
