Mr White was permitted to keep the material for himself. The collection consisted of four lever arch files and one envelope of site plans and photographs constituting a Photographic Record of Progress of the Cameron Offices 1971 - 1975, and 26 technical manuals and costing books.

Series 1 consists of technical manuals and trades literature, possibly used in the construction and fitting out of Cameron Offices.
