For Don't Send Me Flowers When I'm Dead, files containing interview transcripts, audiocassettes of interviews, and photographs used to illustrate the book (some of which are mounted), are arranged alphabetically within each of these categories according to the names of individuals interviewed. A cross-reference list for audiocassettes containing interviews with more than one person is located in the container list. Oversize photographs are housed in flat boxes with the collection.
