One set of documents, from 1930, includes a letter from Jesse Figgins, Museum Director, discussing a dispute between the Museum and Harold Cook, past curator of paleontology at the Museum, over some fossil materials. Another set, from 1936, includes a letter from Hanington offering the directorship of the Museum to Alfred M. Bailey, Bailey's initial handwritten acceptance of the offer and his later typewritten formal acceptance
