The collection holds 141 portrait photographs used by Huntington for his study of the subjects painted by him. Each of the men (and the single woman) in the collection is represented by one or more portrait photographs which had been blown-up to life-size dimensions, sometimes made from a previously existing negative or one made of an earlier photograph. In the case of sitters who died before the advent of paper photography, images were taken from daguerreotypes. The enlargements were mounted on a stiff paperboard and roughly trimmed almost to the shape of the subjects head -- The sitters are familiar to students of nineteenth-century New York: they include prominent bankers, merchants, industrialists, educators, financiers, generals, lawyers, judges, politicians, government officials, and men of the cloth.

The diary opens with a recounting of the deaths of Ephraim Lawrence's father, two sisters (Sarah and Ruth), mother, and a friend (Isaac Colburn), in July and September 1757. Primarily, the diary records Ephraim's spiritual struggles and his affirmation of the goodness of God as he seeks to cope with his bereavements.
