The collection contains papers, correspondence, photographs, clippings, and postcards reflecting Arnold Paul Jenny life and work. For many years Jenny was director of World Y Tours, operated by the International Committee of the YMCAs of the United States and Canada. During World War II Jenny met a young pre-medical student named Hans Mueller. During a year in Siberia during the Russian Revolution as YMCA representative with the American Expeditionary Forces, he developed a lifelong interest in photography. Well after retirement, he gave illustrated lectures about his travels to a wide variety of audiences. Jenny began editing a poetry column in the Medford Mail Tribune. "Poet's Corner" debuted in 1961 and continued until 1975.
