This collection is comprised of five volumes of the signature albums of Irvin C. Poley. The volume includes autographs of famous people, particularly authors, actors and some in government or diplomacy, primarily sent to Irvin Poley, though there are other recipients as well. Many of the instances are signatures. Some of the more well-known/important authors who wrote letters, (rather than just signatures), often relate to speaking at an event or a fund solicitation or response to comment or request for signature from Poley.
