The biographical materials consist of several curriculum vitae, news releases, clippings, some general correspondence, and a few reprints of articles and speeches.

The publications files contain annotated drafts and correspondence relating to Gas Dynamics, published in 1958, which Cambel co-authored with Burgess H. Jennings. Also included is a folder containing errata, reviews, outlines, adds, royalty statements, and a book jacket for the book. A copy of the manuscript for Mathematical Methods of Thermodynamics (ca. 1950), correspondence relating to and a proof of Real Gases (1963, with D.P. Duclos and T.P.
