The collection consists mainly of letters to Schneider, manuscripts, reprints of articles by authors other than Schneider, and material relating to organizations in which Schneider was active.
The correspondence ranges from 1923 to 1976. The earlier letters include well-known correspondents such as John Dewey, Wendell T. Bush, Sidney Hook, George Herbert Mead, and Frederick J.E. Woodbridge. Although some of the letters are concerned with Schneider's philosophical theories and ideas, most of them comment on his books or articles, or concern his European travels; extensive correspondence exists for the period Schneider was working with UNESCO.
There are about 40 manuscripts in the collection, most of which are carbons; approximately 15 are known to be unpublished. Also in the collection are chapters from his books, copies of some of his lectures, also several articles by Dewey and Woodbridge which are now scarce.
The collection also contains minutes and matters pertaining to the American Council of Learned Societies, the American Society for the Study of Religion, East-West Philosophers' Conference and the International Association for the Study of History of Religions, reflecting Schneider's interest in these associations.
In addition to the manuscript material in this collection, there are 46 standing volumes, some of which came from the libraries of Wendell T. Bush, John Dewey, and Frederick Woodbridge. Only three of Schneider's own works are included, one being part of the Woodbridge Lecture series. The volumes included in the American Religion Series are the products of Ph.D. research to which Schneider devoted special attention, since they are aspects of his own research in this field.
