For the in-text citations in MLA, you could use the following format:

[Author/description of item, date/page number (if any)]

For example:
(Alton to Dungan) - if there's only one letter you're citing by Elizabeth Alton, i.e. a letter from her to the Chancellor of Higher Education
(Alton to Dungan, 3 March 1969) - if there's more than one letter from Elizabeth Alton to Ralph Dungan you're citing

(Atlantic City Electric 23) Report by AC Electric, page 23

(Atlantic City Press) only one article cited in your paper and you don't have the author's name
(Atlantic City Press, 3 March 1969) if you're citing multiple articles but don't have the authors' names

Here is a web page that gives a little more information on in-text citations for archival materials:
