Fonds consists of textual and photographic material related to the Reagh family. The textual material consists of two papers regarding genealogical research conducted on Jessie Belcher's family. The first is entitled "The Wassell Family", was written by Wassell Randolph, with a forward added by Jessie Belcher, as well as a page indicating references to her mother's family. The second, which investigates the life of Elizabeth Wedgwood Hawksworth, Jessie Belcher's great-great-great paternal grandmother, was written by Mrs. Belcher herself and is entitled "Who Are You?". Another manuscript entitled "Reflection of Delta Central School" records Mrs. Belcher's memories of Delta Central School and includes anecdotes about teachers, classmates, and school activities. Mrs. Belcher attended the school in the 1930s. The textual records also contain advertising material including monthly calendars from Fisher's Drug And Book Store (1923), envelopes from Ladner United Sunday School, Mc & Mc Department Stores, the Ladner Studio, and a greeting card from Home Oil Distributors Limited. Another file contains greeting cards, an invitation to the opening of the No. 18 Elementary Flying Training School, Boundary Bay, and a name tag for a Graduate Dance for the Air Force, which Jessie Reagh attended in 1941. The tag is "part of wing of plane which cracked up on Sea Island." The file also contains a "Coronation 1937", a booklet prepared by the Department of Education and presented to elementary and high school children in the province. Jessie Reagh wrote an inscription in the centre of the booklet which includes the names of her teachers and classmates. Also included in the textual material are two books, "The New Canadian Hymnal" (1922), and the "Canadian Reader" (1931). The photographs include seven black and white photographs related to the Reagh family.
