Clippings from Miami area newspapers, telegrams, invitation to Roosevelt's inauguration, resolutions of sympathy from the City of Miami and from the State of New Mexico, correspondence, especially from the Odd Fellows, are all related to the attempted assassination of President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt by Giuseppi Zangara in Bayfront Park, Miami. Also included is the May 1933 issue of Startling Detective Adventures, containing an article entitled I Kill all Presidents [a quote from Zangara].

Materials were collected by Russell Caldwell, one of the five persons injured when Zangara fired five shots into the crowd listening to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in Bayfront Park in downtown Miami.
