The collection consists of correspondence, receipts for goods and services, memorandum books, bills for merchandise, and ephemera. Papers of the Civil War era are primarily special orders for Pinson. The correspondence discusses his and other colleagues' medical practices, economic problems of the Reconstruction period, agriculture, and local affairs. Correspondence (ca. 1880-1886) to and from Annie Pinson's brother, Edward Gilbert, describes academic life at Gainesville Male Academy (Alabama), the University of Alabama, Cooper's Institute (Daleville, Mississippi), and Mississippi State A&M College (Starkville). The memorandum books record Pinson's medical appointments and orders in the Army of the Confederate States, Gilbert's accounts at Mississippi State A&M College, weather during January 1884, and whiskey and tobacco accounts. Eva Pinson's autograph book for 1885-1890 is also included, as are a few items belonging to Pinson's son, Senator John H. Pinson.
