The bulk of the records document the docent training program, discovery activities, supplemental educational materials, public tours, and special events at the National Museum of Natural History. A small amount of material documents Gordon's involvement in the larger discussion of gender roles at the Smithsonian Institution and museums in general. Materials include guides to the museum, discovery activity instructions, tour scripts, informational packets, docent training materials, proposals, procedures, strategic planning materials, audiovisual recordings, photographs, brochures, conference papers, meeting materials, and related materials.
