The Writings series consists of Baldwin's own articles and essays, as well as her notes, drafts, and related materials. Most of her writings focused on the colonial United States, especially colonial clergy, and higher education for women. Her ninety-page essay, "The Woman's College As I Remember It," documents Baldwin's challenges in administering Duke's Woman's College. The series begins with individual essays and articles, organized alphabetically, followed by other writing-related materials, organized alphabetically by type (i.e. notes, book reviews, etc.).
