Relander collected a variety of ephemera and newspaper clippings on topics related to his interest in Pacific Northwest history and the relationship between government agencies and tribal groups.

Most of the ephemera was acquired by Relander after 1945 and probably used by him for his work with the Yakima newspapers. The clippings, especially the files containing Indian stories, were generally printed in the 1950s and 1960s, with a small percentage from early 1900s Yakima papers.
