Postcards, photographs, museum catalogs, and other printed ephemera assembled by Schmidt show many of Wright's most famous
buildings and note the relationship of his work to that of other architects. The bulk of the collection comprises journals
and other printed materials describing Wright, his work, or his ideas; some of the printed ephemera is published by the Taliesin
Fellowship. All but two of the publications are listed in R. L. Sweeney's
Frank Lloyd Wright: An Annotated Bibliography and are arranged by Sweeney number. The collection also includes copies of letters,
plans, and some manuscript material.
