The collection contains records of the activities of the First Century Families, especially centered on the planning and implementation of the group's annual luncheon.

The collection contains general administrative files, including correspondence with members; programs, photographs, audio and videotapes, slides, and typescripts of presentations of, and planning documents for, many of the organization's annual luncheons; books, clippings, typescripts and other materials on the history of early Los Angeles families and aspects of Los Angeles history; and clippings documenting the organization's annual luncheons.
