The correspondence consists chiefly of letters from Stanley Pogozelski to his wife Mary C. Pogozelski.

The letters document the daily life of the workers on the highway, as well as Stanley Pogozelski's travel in the Yukon and Alaska. Material includes letterheads illustrated with scenes of Alaska. Also included are a few letters from Mary C. Pogozelski to Stanley Pogozelski, and correspondence with Bechtel-Price-Callahan relating to Pogozelski's draft status.
