The Bloom Papers consist of a diary for the year 1913, a series of affadavits of annual labor for his mining property, and news clippings concerning his death. The diary consists of short entries about daily tasks: checking his trapline, the weather, wildlife sightings, chores, and working with his dogs. Researchers are cautioned that the entries are difficult to read, the handwriting is challenging and English was probably not Bloom's first language. The affadavits include brief descriptions of work completed on the mining claim. The news clippings detail Bloom's death describing how he fell through some ice and apparently used his dog team to strangle himself rather than freeze to death
