The collection includes 29 postage stamps from the Republic of Mali, (24) color postcards, (2) 8 x 10 inch black and white photogaphs, and (2) framed thank you letters to "Terri" (Ambassador Fred Hadsel). Two postcards (1970, 1972) are to Winifred Hadsel, two have notes describing the location/date (1972-1973), while the rest are blank. The postcards depict landscapes and people in Somalia, Mali, Ivory Coast, and Niger, among others. One of the thank you letters is from Prince Ermias and Gelila Sahle-Selanie (October 25, 1999).
