The scrapbooks contain clippings of articles written by Craig for the Toronto Star, the Sudbury Star, and Fore Sight, but also publicity images mostly depicting the role of women in the labour force during WWII.

The fonds also includes research notes, drafts, and different proofs of the book Craig wrote with Claire Wallace, as well as for other books she worked on. There are also notebooks with her poetry.
