Summary
The majority of the collection consists of typescripts of Rainey's various writings and cassette tapes. In addition to his longer works, Open Day and They Stood Up, a number of shorter works and essay are included. Much of what Rainey wrote is based on his own experiences and beliefs. “A Garrulous Hillbilly” appears to be autobiographical. The cassettes hold recordings of Rainey reciting chapters from his own work as well as speeches and stories by Elbert Hubbard and R. G. Ingersoll. There are also some tapes containing political debates. The collection also includes a limited amount of clippings, correspondence, and other papers, including his certificate of admittance to the Indiana bar.
