Bober's interest in the unique concept of Medieval Schemata dominated the middle years of his career and is documented throughout this collection, apparent in many lectures, manuscripts of written works, and research notes. This collection contains much of the research accumulated by Bober on this topic, including his studies of Medieval pictorial language and the scientific and philosophical culture of the Middle Ages. Photograph files contain comprehensive collections of manuscripts and sculptural programs which support his theories pertaining to Medieval Schemata.
The primary value of this collection lies in the fact that Bober was unable to publish many of his ideas on Medieval Schemata before his death. Other areas of interest within the collection involve investigation files and lecture materials. Investigation files were created by Bober while working as a consultant for art dealers, primarily H.P. Kraus. While the bulk of the lecture material available within Series II appears to have been generated by Bober, some very interesting files contain notes and lectures by colleagues Erwin Panofsky, Walter Cook, Richard Krautheimer, and Willibald Sauerländer.
