Some of the numbered photographs are grouped into subject categories. The Jackman Papers photos are arranged geographically by county or by general subject category, such as forage crops, machinery, and seed crops. The collection consists of 1,575 black and white prints, 98 b/w film negatives (some nitrate), 24 color prints, and 64 color slides and transparencies.
