The John Beevers Literary File consists of 425 photographs, 444 black and white negatives, 8 color transparencies, 10 color slides, and 4 albums with 460 photographic prints, the majority of which are images of Beevers, his parents, his first wife Marjorie Pollard Beevers, their daughter Susan, and the Beevers’ family home "Tall Oak". Also represented in the file are Beevers’ parents-in-law, friends, and associates, including Edith Sitwell. An index at the end of this guide lists photographers whose work is featured in this file.
The photographs are organized by images of Beevers and his family in rough chronological order, and then by other identified and unidentified people and places. Descriptions of images were derived by the archivist based on inscriptions on print versos, where available.
This file forms a part of the Literary Files photography collection, which is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures and businesses, and generally include portraits and images taken or collected by and/or of those people and businesses.

Additional materials by and about Beevers are located in the Ransom Center's John Leonard Beevers Papers.
