This collection consists of the more than 100 scrapbooks she compiled for her research. The collection includes images related to Philadelphia, particularly Center City streets. Neighborhoods represented are Frankford, Germantown, Manayunk and Roxborough, as well as views of the Delaware River and along Delaware Avenue. Many of the Center City sites documented are no longer extant. Other subjects include cemeteries, fire departments, businesses, historic houses, residences and churches. Other organizations, arranged under the topic of philanthropy, are also included, such as the Home for Aged Couples, The Burd Orphan Asylum and the Institution for the Deaf and Dumb. Events depicted include city parades and celebrations as well as war-related organizations and activities, such as the Red Cross, Liberty Loans, aid to Armenians and peace promotions prior to US intervention. Individuals also make up a small portion of the collection, including "Renowned Ladies" such as Agnes Repplier and Mrs. Rudolph Blankenburg. The collection consists of photographs taken by Campbell as well as black and white prints, postcards and captioned newspaper photos. There are also a number of newspaper articles, clippings from reports and brochures and some correspondence. Campbell's articles for the Record are also included.
