I remember hearing that Kraus did donate more than
just the VMs to the Beinecke. How much more, I
do not know.

There are piles and piles of photostats of the VMs
in this material. I recollect more nagative than
positive (in the photographic sense).
There are reproductions on which the Tepenecz
signature is rather clearly visible.
The same pages tend to be there many many times.
