The collection consists of a 32.5 minute film, probably shot for insurance purposes, which focuses on the devastation of the commercial and governmental center of Gainesville, but also includes footage of damage to nearby residential areas.

The Richard Nixon/Frank Gannon interviews consist of more than 30 hours of videotapes interviews with former President Richard Nixon. The interviews took place nearly a decade after Nixon's resignation, and were conducted with the benefit of some historical perspective and without media hype. They were made in four groups and two- and three-day sessions spread over seven months in 1983. Each interview was organized around a specific topic or topics. Issues discussed include Nixon's early political career, Vietnam, China, the Soviet Union, the Middle East, the Watergate scandal and Nixon's resignation as president, U.S. domestic policies, U.S. presidents, and foreign leaders. These interviews, conducted by Frank Gannon, former employee and trusted friend of Richard Nixon, represent Nixon's most substantial and lengthy post-presidency interview.
