A manuscript of a work, "An Outline of Resurrection City as Used," heavily notated with fiber-tip pen, blue colored pencil, and graphite pencil. The pages are single-sided with typed black ink. The work begins with three unnumbered pages followed by pages numbered 2 through 22, for a total of 25 pages. The second page, unnumbered, features a diagram of Resurrection City on the National Mall. An example of a handwritten note on the object appears on Page 2 in the left margin adjacent to underlined type and reads [WHAT DOES / THIS IMPLY / ABOUT SUCCESS OR / FAILURE OF / R. CITY?]. Handwritten comments appear in at least three separate hands: one in orange pen and occasionally in graphite, one exclusively in graphite, and one in blue colored pencil. Page 4 features an organizational chart of Resurrection City. The front cover has light damage at the corners, and pages are creased at the corners from handling.
