The Barbara Dahlem papers consist of a scrapbook that contains newspaper clippings, sporting event tickets, and other items which document Dahlem's time at MSU. The materials encompass the time when the Union was used as a women's dormitory because of overcrowding in the women's dorm. The remainder of the scrapbook features party invitations, get-well cards, her friend's wedding announcements, and other notes of friendship. There are also a few clippings about her husband.
