Help finding Dorothy Waugh correspondence with NPS in Records of the National Park Service (Record Group 79)

Hello, I am looking for correspondence from Dorothy Waugh. She designed posters for the NPS and I am doing some research for a class I am teaching. Would love to read the back and forth while she was designing them with NPS Staff. I found this location in a dissertation: Entry 7, Box 325, File Publicity 8/17/34- 11/30/34. Is this something I can find online or do I need to go to the Archives in person? Thank you for any help! Best, Jeremy
