Series 2. Photographs, 1943-1987
Box 1, Folder 59-70
This series contains photographs used for the publication of Honor by fire, original photographs taken by Lyn Crost as a war correspondent in Europe, 1945-1946, and photographs of the Smithsonian exhibit "A More Perfect Union" mounted by the National Museum of American History in 1987. By far the most interesting photographs within this series are ones taken by Lyn Crost during World War II. Virtually each of these black and white photographs has been annotated on the verso with place and date. Some of the annotations contain more detailed information that identifies the individuals in the picture. Many of the photographs were taken in Italy, but most were taken in Germany and capture the devastation of German cities brought about by Allied bombing during the war. Other photographs are of refugees, defeated German soldiers, and survivors of the Nazi death camp at Dachau. Two particular photographs of interest are one of Hitler's bombed out Chancellery office and an interior shot of Hitler's bunker in Berlin with a Russian soldier standing guard. This series contains a wealth of photographic evidence documenting Lyn Crost's participation in World War II as a war correspondent.

Series 3. Literary manuscripts, 1989-1995
Box 1, Folder 71-116
This series is comprised of three subseries.

The Bull and the Contessa
Box 1, Folder 71-76
The first subseries contains two drafts, each of approximately 225 typed pages divided into nineteen chapters, of the manuscript, The Bull and the Contessa. Drawn from a true incident that occurred in Italy during 1945, Lyn Crost explains in the Foreword that she "succumbed to temptation and wove a story around it, based solely on imagination, though no one could deny that, under the strange circumstances which war often produces, it could have happened." Draft A contains annotated notes, while draft B appears to contain the corrections from draft A. A handwritten note attached to the title page of draft A notes the manuscript was submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office September 23, 1989.

Farewell to Paradise
Box 2, Folder 77-102
Farewell to Paradise, an unpublished manuscript of approximately 800 pages, tells the story of those Japanese Americans who, according to the author, were "not only in the fight against the German enemy but also in the fight against racial prejudice in America. The story is told in terms of human beings rather logistics." Broken down into one chapter per folder, each of the twenty-five typed chapters is annotated in Lyn Crost's handwriting. Farewell to Paradise, while never published as a book, was eventually incorporated into Honor by fire.

Series 6. Subject files, 1939-1995
Box 3, Folder 173-193
This series contains materials that fall outside the scope of the others series of this collection and reflect some of the varying interests of Lyn Crost. There are a few news clippings, for example, about cowboys, Hawaiian culture, or of long-time residents of Hawaii. For example, one clipping dated April 5, 1939, from the Honolulu Star Bulletin, reports on the visit, after a 42-year absence, of the daughter of the last British minister in residence to Hawaii during the final years of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Among the other materials within this series is an extract of Whence the "black Irish" of Jamaica? (1932) by Joseph J. Williams that reflects Lyn Crost's interest in Irish Genealogy, copies of Hitler's personal letterhead stationery she retrieved from the bombed out offices of the Nazi Chancellery building and the itinerary from her tour of Japan in 1969.
