A series of 1949 letters congratulates the young couple (Bill Chester and Priscilla Penfield) on their engagement. One letter is also between Wilder Penfield and George Chester. A few materials are related to posthumous honours for Wilder Penfield, such as the naming of a building after him at John Abbott College (letter to Wilder Penfield Jr.) and a 1982 speech given by Priscilla at the Penfield Children's Center (typescript copy). There is also correspondence between Bill Chester and William Feindel. One 1976 carbon copy of a letter (1976) details the period following the death of Priscilla's father, Wilder Penfield, while the couple was in Japan.
