A large percentage of the files deal with Thye's constituent relations and services; expressions of Minnesota opinion on matters of national, state, and local interest; and bills introduced or supported by Thye. The remainder concerns legislation, policies, programs, and projects which Congress and the executive branch of the government acted upon during Thye's tenure.
The papers emphasize Minnesota issues, projects, events, communities, and agricultural topics; U.S. Department of Agriculture programs and the work of the Senate Agriculture Committee; military bases and facilities, Minnesota defense contracts, activities of the U.S. Department of Defense, and related topics; Indian affairs, especially community facilities, programs, and services for Minnesota Indians; Minnesota post offices, airport facilities, and air services; and the work of the Senate Select Committee on Small Business (1953-1958), especially regarding assistance to Minnesota businesses.
There are substantial files relating to waterway improvements, including Minnesota floods (from 1940), watershed and flood protection and control, reservoirs and dams, especially projects of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Minnesota and the upper Midwest.
Other files cover general political and Republican party matters, the 1952 presidential campaign, and Thye's own publicity activities, speeches, statements, and 1952 Senate campaign.
