These papers consist of journals from Blackwelder's field work in the West Indies while he was recipient of the Walter Rathbone Bacon Traveling Scholarship (1935-1938); journals of his wife, Ruth M. Blackwelder, from the same period; notebooks from his research in museums in the United States and England; a notebook listing species in his personal collection; a notebook containing recollections on entomologists met by Blackwelder; a journal kept on field trips to the American west, 1960, 1962, 1964; and an album of photographs from his field work in the West Indies.
