The collection includes: Hiller's patents, lecture notes, design drawings, instruction manuals, trade literature, notebooks and card files on various refrigeration subjects, two volumes of blueprints, and bulletins. Additionally, there are eleven bound volumes of records, two of which are the minute books of the Carbondale Machine Company of Carbondale, Pennsylvania. They contain the minutes from the meetings of the Directors and Board of Trustees. The other volumes are letterpress books of Hiller's personal and business correspondence. Most are from his time with the Carbondale Machine Company, though some are from his employment with Hendricks Manufacturing Company.
