Items include two copies of engravings of Henry Clay, a silk ribbon commemorating Clay, and a presentation letter (1929) from Conrad to Reed.

In the letter, Henry Clay Conrad explains that he is sending two prints of Henry Clay engravings to Reed because both men are his namesakes; Reed later added the ribbon to the engravings and had all three pieces mounted for display.
