Summary:
Correspondence, employment forms, promotional literature, photographs, and sales training literature from Rangelhoff's early career; and 38 punchboards for gambling purposes. (A modern punchboard typically is a rectangular piece of wood or cardboard in which hundreds or thousands of holes have been drilled in a regular pattern, then loaded with tiny slips of rolled or folded paper. Each slip of paper had a number or symbol printed on it. Both front and back of the board were covered with a foil or paper seal. The front of the board typically featured some form of attention-getting commercial imagery and a chart listing the winning number or combination of numbers and symbols, along with the prizes or cash amounts to be awarded to the winners. The boards were sold with a metal stylus or "punch" for players' use.)
