The John DePol Collection primarily consists of prints, cards, and copies on paper of several illustrations and wood engravings by DePol. Also included are articles discussing the artist's work, exhibition announcements and catalogs, a small amount of correspondence, miscellaneous documents and ephemera, as well as publications and other texts written or collected by DePol. Several items have typewritten commentaries by the artist explaining their significance. Of particular interest is a career retrospective entitled "A Time for Recollection" accumulated by DePol and featuring copies of his engravings, captions, and illustrations spanning three decades of his life.
