The collection consists of architecturalphotographs, diaries, a letter, and a set of reprinted papers bySorby with his manuscript amendments.

There are also specimens ofhalf-timbered work. The eleven diaries, written in pencil, coverthe years 1859-1908 （with some gaps）, and there is a further diary in inkthought to be by his father Henry Sorby for the years 1845-1846.The printed papers with manuscript amendments appear to includeinstructions to the printer intended to produce revisedversions.

After completing hiseducation both at Sheffield Collegiate School and by privatetuition he devoted his life to scientific research, being elected aFellow of the Royal Society at the early age of 31. His publishedpapers, which number over 150, include research in chemistry,metallurgy, biology and geology. His best known work was in thelast of these fields, in particular in microscopy. He pioneered thebasic techniques of microscopic petrology and of modernmetallography, and invented the microspectroscope.
Sorby took a keen interest in education and duringthe 1860s had taken a leading part in an unsuccessful attempt tofound a Technical School in Sheffield. Soon after the establishmentof Firth College he became its Vice-President in 1881, Presidentfrom 1882-1897, and Vice-President of the new University College,Sheffield, 1897-1905.
