The second accrual (23-1996) consists of files from Allen's office in Queen's Park, covering the period 1982-1995. By and large this accrual consists of reports, briefs, news releases, press clippings, photocopies of internal memos, communiques, and printed matter. The original material consists of daily journals, correspondence to and from Allen to constituents and colleagues in the New Democratic Party, correspondence to and from federal cabinet ministers, holograph or typescript versions of speeches and notes. Frequently, incoming and outgoing correspondence is one of multiple copies. Original order has been maintained as much as possible in the arrangement of this accrual. The titles that appear on the files are the original titles. The series and subseries are organized in an attempt to reflect the career of Richard Allen: Series 1: in opposition 1982-1990; Subseries: Hamilton; education; Francophone affairs; Community and Social Services & Office of the Disabled; personal and administrative. Series 2: minister and member of government, 1990-1995. Subseries: Meech Lake and post-Meech Lake; Minister of Colleges & Universities; Minister Responsible for the Ontario Training & Adjustment Board; Minister of International Trade; Minister of Housing; Minister's administrative files. Series 3: sound recordings and videocassette, 1989-1995. It should be noted that a chronological arrangement within the sub-series has been attempted, in order to trace the prolific political endeavours of Allen. Box numbering in this accrual is sequential with the previous accrual. The third accrual (24-2000) consists of administrative files reflecting Allen's political activities sukch as council minutes, reports, election results, press releases and promotional materials. The accrual also contains files relating to GO-ALRT and the Canadian Porcelain Project.

The McGill University Press material includes the initial proposal document, newspaper clippings, early design prototypes, and graphic materials produced by the press (page proofs, invitations, greeting cards, prints of R.D. Wilson artwork). The Ryerson Press material includes two logo blocks (publisher’s device), newspaper clippings, and various administrative files. Also included in the fonds: correspondence with Marsh Jeanneret, Donald Sutherland, Dick Wilson and W.H. Clarke from Clarke, Irwin & Co. Ltd.; photographs; an unpublished manuscript entitled The Crooked Axe: A Lighthearted Sketch of Canadian History to 1900 written by Farr in 2008 (unpublished at time of this description), and a copy of The Living Past of Montreal, McGill University Press, 1964, drawn by R.D.

The fonds consists of 37 letters from Jack Butler Yeats (1871-1957) to McLoughlin. There is also a Christmas card signed by Yeats, and an unsigned, unaddressed post card, possibly from Yeats. The other items in the fonds belonging to McLoughlin are: a poem by Padraic Colum (1881-1972), "The Sea Bird to the Wave", which McLoughlin notes Padraic wrote down for him one night at the Arts Club in 1958 and two manuscripts, one about the Irish troubles in 1916-1921 and the other a collection of Irish proverbs from a social evening at the Club in 1967. The first manuscript is the result of McLoughlin contacting veterans of the troubles and getting them to write down their memoirs in 1966.
There are several items in the fonds that do not appear to have a direct tie to McLoughlin. These items include: a poem, "Sleep Song", by Frederick Robert Higgins (1896-1941), editor, poet, and playwright; a signed Christmas card from James Sullivan Starkey and E. F. Starkey to J. J. Chicester containing a printed poem, "1939" by Seumas O'Sullivan (1879-1958) and signed by O'Sullivan (O'Sullivan was the pseudonym of James Sullivan Starkey); letter from Katharine Tynan (1861-1931), poet and novelist, to Mr. O'Leary; two letters from W. B. Yeats (1865-1939), poet and playwright, one to Sara Allgood and the other to Mr. Farrell. The letter to Mr. Farrell was removed from the library copy of a book and thus did not belong to McLoughlin. The other items in the fonds are all printed: poems on Christmas cards by Donagh MacDonagh (1912-1968), barrister, editor, poet, and playwright; a sermon by The Right Reverend Robert Wyse Jackson, Bishop of Limerick; and an Irish National Theatre Society programme.

The fonds is mainly concerned with the writing of The Perilous Trade.
The fonds consists of four letters written to John and Christine McCampbell. All the letters are signed C.C.B. Three are written from Whitney while the fourth is from “Brant and Walker, Z Cross Ranch, Fort St. John, B.C.” The assumption has been made that Christine is his sister and John his brother-in-law, although he does address them as “brother and sister”. The McCampbells are living in Uxbridge Ont. in 1919 and in Thessalon, Ont. in 1922. The most interesting letter is the one written from Fort St. John. He predicts that “this country is going to boom” before too long.
The fonds contains: correspondence; poetry and other writing; personal material, business material; photographs; promotional material; and other material.
