    A Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz Massive Collection of Personal and Business Documents, 1950s-1960s. Housed in one banker's box filled to the brim; comprising hundreds of pieces of paperwork related to both the couple's private life and business life [Desilu, Inc.] including: check book registers, business ledgers of expenses, store receipts, agreements with contractors, memos, handwritten lists, detailed household expense listings, tax forms, invoices, doctor visit notes, etc. -- it really goes on and on; one could virtually recreate the couple's day-to-day existence for about a ten year span (and while they were at the height of their fame) with this archive that is most likely from their tax attorney or accountant's files; a true treasure trove for the Lucy completist!
