SPNHC affiliated people documented in the collection include Suzanne MacLaren, Judith Price, Lisa Palmer, Linda Hollenberg, Carolyn L. Rose, and Paisley S. Cato. Particularly well documented is the SPNHC publication, Storage of Natural History Collections: Ideas and Practical Solutions, 1992, which was funded by a grant from the Institute for Museum Services.

Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, newsletters and other serial publications, annual meeting records, workshop records, membership lists, committee records, reports, budget records, images, drawings, grant records, author releases, leadership manuals, financial records, and other related materials documenting SPNHC activities.

The Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC) was created in 1985. It is a multidisciplinary organization, including persons within the fields of anthropology, zoology, botany, geology, paleontology, and others who are interested in the development and preservation of natural history collections. These records document the establishment and early history of SPNHC and include officers files, committee files and reports, membership records, annual meeting materials, copies of the "Collection Forum" (SPNHC Journal) and the SPNHC Newsletter, and advertising files for "Collection Journal." A small amount of material pre-dates the establishment of SPNHC and concerns the 1981 and 1985 Workshops on the Care and Maintenance of Natural History Collections in Ottawa and Toronto.
