The Anne Haight Lee papers consist of a scrapbook, photographs of members of the Lee family, and two manuscripts relating to her family genealogy. The scrapbook, compiled by her father, Robert Perine Lee, contains newspaper clippings, photographs, letters, and other documents from the 1840s through 1910 concerning the Lee, Wiltse, Haight, and Van Wyck families as well as popular news stories. The photographs include pictures of Anne Haight Lee and her husband Earle O. Titus, her father, her mother Anna Miller Haight, her brothers Samuel Van Wyck Lee and Robert P. Lee, Jr., and her grandparents Samuel Haight, and Caroline Bines. Most images date from the 1890s, although there are also several unidentified ferrotypes of children from an earlier date and snapshots of Mr. and Mrs. Titus, 1927-circa 1950. The manuscripts include notes on the life of Andrew Miller and his descendants, including Robert Perine Lee, and notes entitled "Wiltse of Fishkill on Hudson," which trace the ancestry of Lee's grandmother Elizabeth Wiltse.
