The papers are made up entirely of a combined logbook and journal, "Log of a cruise in the U.S. Gunboat 'Port Royal'." Included in the journal is Charles William Bishop's account of the sinking of the Cumberland by the Merrimac, together with poetry, newspaper clippings, and other papers about the battle.
The papers consist of pamphlets and other printed matter with some letters, diaries and manuscripts relating to naval affairs. The largest block of material concerns World War I, particularly the questions of the German naval mutiny of 1917, the surrender of the German fleet in November 1918, and the scuttling of its most important units at Scapa Flow in 1919. Also in the collection are circa two thousand postcards showing World War I naval scenes and photographs of American transports.
The collection consists of correspondence, poems, estate papers, notebooks, account books, logbooks, legal books, and miscellaneous papers of the Lay, Parker, Pratt, Shaler, Smith, Stark, Tyler, and Williams families of eastern Connecticut.
The collection consists of ships' journals, invoices, manifests, lists of crews, clearance papers and other documents relating to shipping, largely from Connecticut ports in the 18th and 19th centuries. There is also a small quantity of papers from Massachusetts, New York and elsewhere.
