The Morrison-Shearer collection is an extensive collection of dance films, most of which were shot by Helen Balfour Morrison. Sybil Shearer and Jerry Lev, a Shearer Company dancer, shot a small number of the films. Most films were shot in Northbrook, IL at Shearer’s dance studio and the surrounding environs that include the neighboring golf course, Green Acres Country Club. Some of the 8mm films were shot in New York City. The collection features solo performances by Sybil Shearer, Shearer with her dance company, interviews with Sybil Shearer and some rehearsal footage.

The Raymond and Jane Dean Collection consists of films made and collected by the Dean family of Rockford, IL. The films depict the family at leisure at home and on their farm, including hiking, golfing at the Sinnissippi Golf Course, and celebrating Christmas, Easter, and other holidays. Trips to nearby towns and locations include Belvidere, Edgebrook, Beloit (WI), Lake Geneva, and Auburn (IN), and at least one film depicts a 1943 game of the Rockford Peaches women's baseball team. Included with the collection is a spiral-bound notebook that describes some of the home movie reels in detail.
