The exhibition files consist of drawings, photographic materials, documentation, and publicity files, while the publication materials include a variety of newspaper and magazine articles concerning Israel, in addition to correspondence files, and production materials for larger publications such as line negatives. Completing this series is documentation relating to various professional activities conducted by Israel, such as lectures and tours, awards and honors received, materials relating to Israel's education and teaching career, film production work, articles written and research conducted by Israel, and miscellaneous artwork. Some of the artwork included may be related to unidentified projects or produced for exhibitions. Certain subjects may also contain materials relating to specific projects from Series I.
