Many of the events and performances referenced in the materials are associated with Labour Zionism, Pioneer Women's Organization, and the Jewish Public Library. Additionally, playbills, newspaper clippings, and photographs from several plays Feldman Chmiel partook in at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts (then the Saidye Bronfman Centre) are in the fonds.

The majority of the fonds' material is contained within a single scrapbook, but two files of loose textual records--one containing Feldman Chmiel's own poetry, the other containing mostly correspondence and newspaper clippings--can also be found in the fonds.
