The June Tuck Collection is divided into the following series: Vertical Files, Genealogy Files, Notebooks, Books and Printed Materials, Realia, and Electronic Media.
Series I, Vertical Files, contains all subject-based research files maintained by Mrs. Tuck. Most relate to Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County history, events, people, places, organizations, businesses and industry, families, and landmarks. The files include her research, assorted primary source materials, correspondence with other researchers, and photocopies of secondary source materials. Also included in this series are photographs. For preservation purposes, the photographs were moved to separate boxes.
Series II, Genealogy Files, inlcudes all research files related to the Tuck and England Families. The folders are arranged alphabetically by surname.
Series III, Notebooks, includes all research organized by Mrs. Tuck into notebooks or binders. The materials included in this series primarily relates to Hopkins County and Sulphur Springs, but many notebooks include research related to the surrounding counties.
Series IV, Books and Printed Matierals, includes all books donated with the collection. A complete list of the donated books is available within this finding aid. The books can also by located by searching the Gee Library catalog. Printed materials also includes an extensive microfilm collection of Texas newspapers used by Mrs. Tuck in her research along with ledger books, scrapbooks, and a small postcard collection.
Series V, Realia, is the smallest series in the collection. This series contains a brick from the Sulphur Springs square and a small collection of pins and buttons.
Series VI, Electronic Media, is a temporary series to note the presence of floppy discs, CDs, and other electronic media in the collection. This series is currently not open to the public. The electronic media will be processed at a later date and the electronic records will be incorporated into the finding aid at the appropriate locations.
