Collection consists primarily of Nichtenhauser's correspondence and subject/project files, alphabetically arranged. A large part of the collection consists of topical film lists and reviews used in publishing bibliographies, education/teaching, promotion, advertising.

Nichtenhauser's material is divided into two different numbered collections. MS C 277 contains material from the original donation of 1954. It consists of correspondence, notes and other research materials assembled by Nichtenhauser during the course of his career.
