Much of the collection consists of Newton's field notes of geological and natural history surveys in Michigan, Ohio, New Mexico, Montana, and Minnesota, and Alexander's survey notes and reports for various mining companies. The survey materials are complemented by diaries, letterbooks, science notes, and articles that also focus on their geological work.
The papers also contain Newton's diaries and notebooks (1855-1872) concerning social life at Lakeville, Connecticut, college life at the University of Michigan, and the schools he taught in New York and Michigan; his account books (1872-1901); and data on a falling meteor that was seen in Minnesota and Iowa in 1890. The papers of Horace V. Winchell include a minute book of a University of Minnesota debating society (1885); and a letter book (1893-1898) relating to his explorations for the Minnesota Mining Company, to a project to develop the water power of Rainy River, and to the exploitation of the Mesabi Iron Range.
The family papers include correspondence and account books (1829-1853) of Newton's father Horace, a farmer in Dutchess County, New York; biblical manuscripts by Horace; assorted other family letters and memorabilia; Horace's journal (1849-1850) of an ocean voyage to California during the gold rush; and biographical and genealogical data. There is information on Charlotte (Mrs. Newton) Winchell's activities in the First Methodist Church of Minneapolis and its Woman's Foreign Missionary Association, the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and the Minneapolis School Board, and her trips to France (1896). Letters from Horace V.'s wife Ida (1898-1899) refer to social life in Minneapolis and to concerts in Philadelphia.
