The first two are additional notes from class and titled "Map Plotting" and "Common Defects of Negatives". The 3rd typescript titled "Order 1" is a privacy contract for the school, prohibiting imparting information to anyone without specific authority. The 4th carbon is an extract taken from an article by J.I. Crabtree "The Camera: High Temperature Development of Roll Film". Another added insert is a letter and envelope addressed to Gerry from Windy, who is a former co-worker and friend. This personal letter was written to try to "catch-up" on old times and discuss possible employment opportunities. The last loose pages inserted into the back of the binder are 17 strips of paper with additional handwritten notes in pencil.
