Andrew's publications and research papers together form the largest part of the collection. They include research notes, experimental results and photographs relating to MRI, NMR and magic angle spinning (the technique which he pioneered), copies of his own published papers, and drafts of such papers. There is also a substantial amount of correspondence, which he exchanged with scientists around the world for more than half a century.
Other main areas of the collection include papers relating to conferences he attended and lectures he gave (generally including meeting programmes and his lecture notes), papers from his time at the University of Florida, and material relating to his membership of scientific societies.
Also present are around 750 35 mm slides showing graphs and diagrams relating to magic angle spinning and MRI.
