There are literary materials relating to the publication of Not a Still Life: The Art and Writings of Rae Perlin, which was compiled and edited by Marian Francis White and published by Killick Press of St.John's in 1991. There are notes, plans and a draft of the book, as well as correspondence with publishers and bookstores. The collection contains Perlin's correspondence with charities, religious groups, politicians and many non-government agencies, addressing a variety of causes. This correspondence reveals much about her personal character, through the causes that she remained committed to for many years. In addition to literary and personal papers, there are photographs dating from 1920. These show Perlin in a variety of places, ranging from Guelph, Ontario to Placentia, Newfoundland. They contain images of a youthful Rae Perlin, as well as her in later years, spending time with family members as recent as 1996. There are also photographs of other members of the Perlin family.
