Highlights of the collection include original design proposals for the 200-inch telescope mount, in both schematic and three-dimensional/cutaway form, plus a series of drawing of Hale's spectrohelioscope. Some of Porter's military drawings are also represented, as well as miscellaneous drawings of Caltech engineering projects such as the Hydrodynamics Laboratory.
