About 40 items.

Arrangement: by type.

Letters, a speech, biographical material, lyric material, music, a photograph, and other material relating to Schinhan. Correspondence relates chiefly to Schinhan's music; however, there is one personal letter to Schinhan from his brother (written in German), 1897. Musical items consist chiefly of autograph presentation copies of music to Schinhan from various composers. Music compositions are also included in the folder entitled Bohemian Club. Schinhan was a member of this San Francisco club and apparently wrote a few musical compositions for its 1923 meeting.

The miscellaneous material includes a photographed copy of a charcoal sketch of Schinhan, circa 1960s, an evaluation of JPS's dissertation, and an award certificate for the North Carolina Folklore Society's Brown-Hudson Folklore Award, 1970.
