The collection documents the club's activities since its founding in 1936, and is fairly comprehensive in nature. Highlights include meeting minutes dating back to the beginning; catalogs, photographs, and correspondence files for National Specialties from the early 1970s through early 2000s; comprehensive runs of the club newsletters and handbooks; and an extensive series of photographs and negatives, sometimes accompanied by pedigrees, depicting important dogs of the breed.
The Thomas M. Gately papers collect photographs, correspondence, clippings, and other documents related to the Gatelys' handling and kennel business with a focus on photographs of their prize-winning dogs. The majority of the photographs are "win shots" and the majority of the documents are books, receipts, correspondence, and clippings related to the kennel and handling business. There are also some photographs and documents related to the Gatelys' personal life.
