Diary, correspondence, photograph -- The collection contains a diary about 35 pages long dated August 16, 1837, to May 18, 1838, containing details from the second Seminole Indian war. The diary is the Major's view of the war and why Major Dade takes command of the company that he should be leading. His view of the orders from the general to travel to Fort King, the site of which is now part of present day Ocala, and wait for reinforcements is different from that of Major Dade. There are also three letters from the Major to his wife, Mary, asking about her health. He writes the letters almost as love letters away from home and homesick. Also contained in the collection is a pension letter for Mary in reference to the death of the Major. A photograph of his personal effects is included with the diary

Records of YMCA work in Russia and the Soviet Union consist of reports, correspondence, financial records, and printed material. Early material consists primarily of correspondence among YMCA secretaries working in Russia, as well as correspondence and reports to James Stokes, John R. Mott, and other YMCA leaders in the United States on matters relating to programs, relations with the Orthodox Church, finances, and membership recuritment. During World War I, the North American YMCA shifted its emphasis to welfare with soldiers, including work with prisoners of war. Thus, much of the 1914 to 1918 records deal with the financing and administration of visits to prisoners of war camps and of getting educational and recreational materials to prisoners.
