The Kentucky State Poetry Society records document the activities of the organization, especially in the first two decades. During that time there are photographs, scrapbooks, news clippings, membership lists and correspondence which show the activities of the group.
The collection includes an almost complete set of Pegasus and the newsletter as well as publications from other related organizations. Also included are records of the poetry contests with annotations by Jesse Stuart on the poems he judged in the 1971 contest. A notebook of biographical information, photographs and manuscript poems by Kentucky poets is also noteworthy.
