The Isabel Martin Papers contain mostly non-print materials which relate to Martin's work at the Buffalo Mountain Conservation Camp. There are 354 color slides, two reels of 8 mm film, one reel of 16 mm film, and 146 prints (both black and white and color) which concern camp activities. Other materials which relate to the camp and camping in general include handouts, reprints, instructions, and publications. Materials which do not relate to the camp include 31 black and white prints which concern school activities, one folder of material on Stonehenge, and four slides on Stonehenge. The Stonehenge materials were used by Martin for a presentation she gave to a local women's club on her trip to the site.
The collection is divided into two series: Series 1, Conservation Camp, and Series 2, Other Materials.
