Many of the papers relating to the career and activities of Manuel Quezon, including copies of original documents. The collection includes documents transcribed in the 1950s from Quezon's papers.

Researchers should note that this collection documents research conducted by Goodman regarding a variety of subjects relevant to Southern, Eastern, and Southeastern Asia. Specifically, part of Goodman's research focused on the system of sexual slavery perpetuated by the Japanese military between 1932 and 1945. Language in the collection materials may use euphemistic terms for victims of this practice (such as the term "comfort women", coined by Japanese military) and reflects the language in use during Goodman's lifetime.
