Her collection of rare books portraits, letters, manuscripts and original artworks was edited and published as the Catalogue of Botanical Books in the Collection of Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt or Hunt Catalogue; 1958-1961. The Hunts donated the collection and a building to Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) to house both her collection and a campus library with dedication in 1961 as the Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt Botanical Library. In 1971 the organization had become so diversified that it was named Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation.
