The scrapbooks contain correspondence, news clippings, magazine articles, brochures, advertisements and photographs dealing with Schlumbohm's activities and products. The great majority of the pieces deal with the Chemex coffee maker, including rejection letters from companies that Schlumbohm tried to interest in manufacturing it, letters of endorsement from cartoonist Charles Addams, Lyndon Johnson, and Bess Truman, gift catalogs that included the Chemex, and photographs of the Chemex in the famous 1959 American kitchen exhibit in Moscow, scene of the "kitchen debate" between Nixon and Khrushchev.
Other products include the Chemobile, a radically simplified boxy compact car that was the antithesis of the low-slung, voluptuous American cars of the period, the "Mixarium" cocktail shaker, the "Fahrenheitor" wine or beer-bottle cooler, the "Pre-vue" color-correcting mirror, a German water pump, and mobile refrigeration units. There is also material dealing with Schlumbohm's work with dry ice, correspondence relating to Schlumbohm's patents, and candid photos of Schlumbohm and his friends.
