The papers contain letters written by Sir Henry to his wife Penelope from Europe during World War I, and Paris during the Peace Conference. There is a small amount of family correspondence including letters from Gullett's children, in particular from Jo and Sue Gullett. Other letters and telegrams congratulate Gullett on his knighthood in 1933, and his appointment to the Ministry in 1939. Correspondents include parliamentarians, diplomats and acquaintances in the Armed Forces, and in particular J.A. Lyons, Sir Robert Menzies, John Latham, Sir Henry Chauvel, Professor A.E.V. Richardson, Sir C. Brudenell White, Lord Gowrie, Sir Archdale Parkhill and Charles Hawker. Some notes from Gullett's early school days (ca. 1889), texts of parliamentary speeches and ministerial statements, newspaper cuttings, personal documents such as passports, letters to Lady Gullett (including one from Sir F. Gavan Duffy) and a large series on the Imperial Economic Conference in Ottawa are also contained in the collection.
