The collection begins with a Valentine that Harrison sent to Helen Kemper of Glendale, Ohio, a student at the Oxford Female Institute, in 1851. A photocopy of Harrison's commencement oration, "England's Poor," written June 24, 1852, also dates from Harrison's days as a student at Miami University. Presidential campaign ephemera include sheet music titled "Gen'l Harrison's Grand March," composed by Clifford Hale in 1888; a brochure from the 1892 Harrison-Reid campaign titled "American Farmers Are Protected by the McKinley Tariff Law;" and official ballots from the November 8, 1892 Presidential election. Other printed ephemera in the collection include business advertisements featuring images of President Harrison, such as a card for the B. Hafertepen shoe store in Hamilton, Ohio. Another card for Cincinnati tailor Henry W. Mack includes images of Harrison, Levi Morton, and representative businessmen of the United States government. An 1890 Puck editorial cartoon titled "The Raven" can be found in the collection. The cartoon depicts President Harrison sitting at his desk, wearing his grandfather's hat which is too big for his head, suggesting that he is not fit for the presidency. Sitting on top of a bust of William Henry Harrison is Secretary of State James G. Blaine, a reference to Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." Blaine and Harrison were at odds over the McKinley Tariff, which set the average ad valorem tariff rate for imports to the United States at 48.4 percent and protected agriculture. A publication titled "Galveston and Deep Water" provides insight into President Harrison's views of Galveston, Texas, which he included in his annual message to Congress on December 1, 1890. The publication also provides the full text of Harrison's Galveston speech, delivered at the Beach Hotel, Galveston, on April 18, 1891.

Ephemera pertaining to Caroline Harrison includes an announcement of a log cabin raising by the Carrie Harrison Club in September 1888. The collection includes first day of issue cards for the Benjamin Harrison stamp, released in conjunction with the celebration of Miami University's sesquicentennial in 1959.

Photographic images in the collection include a Civil War-era tintype of Carter Bassett Harrison, son of John Scott Harrison (Miami University 1857-1861) and brother of Benjamin Harrison. Carter Harrison left Miami to volunteer in the 51st Ohio Volunteer Infantry; he obtained the rank of Colonel during the Civil War. A photographic print also shows Harrison with fellow Civil War generals William Cogswell, Dan Dunstan, and William T. Ward. The collection also includes a group of views of a visit of President Harrison and Vice President Morton to New York, April 29-30, 1889. Removed from an unidentified book, the plates include views of the landing at the foot of Wall Street, naval and military parades, and Harrison delivering a speech at the Sub-Treasury. A photograph of a street in Broadalbin, New York during the 1892 Presidential campaign shows a banner for Harrison and Reid. A photographic print of Harrison planting a tree in Glen Miller, April 25, 1895 is taken from Dalbey's Souvenir Pictorial History of the City of Richmond, Indiana, published in 1896. Photographic prints related to Caroline Harrison include a photograph taken by Matthew Brady of Caroline Harrison and other ladies on the occasion of the First Continental Congress of the Daughters of the American Revolution in February 1892. The collection also includes an image of Dr. Scott's Boarding-House for Young Ladies at the corner of College and High Streets in Oxford, where the Harrisons are said to have been married. Finally, a print of a photograph showing four generations of the Scott family - John W. Scott, Caroline Scott Harrison, Mary Harrison McKee, and her children - can also be found in the collection. Campaign-related objects in the collection include a metal lapel pin, silk ribbons, handkerchiefs, and a metal pillbox configured as a stack of coins that reads "My Pile on Harrison," with portraits of Harrison and Whitelaw Reid.

The 2008 White House Historical Association Christmas ornament, honoring the administration of Benjamin Harrison, can also be found in the collection. The collection concludes with a copy of "The Inauguration of President Harrison - The Procession Returning from the Capitol," a supplement to the March 16, 1889 issue of Harper's Weekly. An August 23, 1889 Cincinnati Commercial Gazette article reports President Harrison's speech to commemorate a monument to commemorate the valor and heroism of Indiana soldiers. Cincinnati Enquirer articles from August 22, 1884 and August 22, 1889 report on Harrison's handshake and his visit to Cincinnati.
