Personal and Memorabilia [series]:

The Personal and Memorabilia series (0.5 linear feet) is comprised of a variety Engdahl's personal documents and artifacts, such as baptismal and death certificates and various party and trade union membership cards. The few delegate's badges likely belonged to Engdahl, too. A small number of Pauline Levitin Engdahl's and Sophia Levitin Rodriguez's effects are here as well.
