Mr. Naylor's papers include scrapbooks relating to his life and career, and scripts for radio programs that he wrote, produced and performed in.

Many of the Folders of scripts also include listener correspondence relating to the programs, and some contain background material that Mr. Naylor used when creating the shows. Additional content include materials from Mr. Naylor's tenure as the program director of WAGA radio and television from 1951 through 1959, and when he wrote and produced radio and television advertising for Coca-Cola products with the McCann-Erickson advertising agency from 1960 through 1986.
