The Gertrude Ogg Papers consists of the Normal Advance, photographs, and other publications. The Normal contains much of the information that was happening during the month, as the publication was put out monthly. It consisted on journaled articles, pictures of students, their organizations and their activities. The other written documentation is of the history of Indiana State from 1865-1945 written by William O. Lynch, as well as the 1966 Founders Day Message and The Alumnitems of 1963. The photographs are of the original Indiana State Normal School building that burnt down in 1888 and of another unidentified building that appears to be of similar age.
