There are also poetry, notes on art and film projects, childhood recollections, and scattered diary entries (1929-1960), including an entry about his father's visit from Cuba in 1947.
Printed material (1918-1991) consists of exhibition announcements and catalogs, clippings, and magazines such as Bally-Hoo and Cine Mundial featuring his caricatures. Scrapbooks (1920s-1990s) contain clippings, printed cartoons and illustrations; and reviews of exhibitions from U.S. and Latin American newspapers.
Photographs (1918-1990) are of Riveron, his wife Noella, art work, artists, actors, musicians, and others, including Cundo Bermudez, Mario Carreño, Xavier Cugat, Ray Milland, Mario Moreno (Cantinflas), Pablo Neruda, Jose Clemente Orozco, Amelia Peláez, Alma Reed, Rosalind Russell, Juan José Sicre, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, and Luis Gomez Waguemert.
