Series VI.B. Clippings and assorted research materials contains mostly press clippings on a wide range of topics, as well as assorted articles, ephemera, reports, and other materials. Some of the materials, including envelopes originally containing the clippings, have brief annotations.
Arranged into three sections: clippings received from Argus media service, articles clipped by Szeemann, and unfiled clippings.
The files were found arranged together but unlabeled, and category titles were devised by the archivist upon review of their contents.

3315-3317 Various topics, 1985-1988
Box 3315 contains clippings on fine arts and architecture; box 3316 on languages, books, publishing, and libraries; and box 3317 on visual art and cultural history.

Clippings in box 3318 were found in untitled binders with topics covering music, art, literature, theater, linguistics, mythology, politics, philosophy, film, history, architecture, and science fiction. In addition to clippings, box 3320 has a wooden toy found together with clippings (see folders 7-8) and an eagle pin and piece of a plastic toy in folder 9. Materials in box 3321 were found together unsorted. Szeemann's driver's license application was found among the materials in folder 5 and was removed to box 3503. Materials in boxes 3325-3326 were originally found in a box labeled: Harry - Kritiken [reviews], Zeitungsausschnitte [newspaper clippings] - Nachruf [obituary] Papa! - [Mark?]ansammlung [stamp collection] - Photos. Photocopies of these labels are included in box 3325, folder 1. However, the box contained only newspaper clippings, and these include neither reviews of Szeemann's work nor obituaries.
