The collection is comprised of Sherman's Georgia-related research materials that were donated to Special Collections in 2006. Mr. Sherman continues to add to the collection. Much of the collection is made of research notes and copies of primary documents Sherman used during his career in historic preservation in the state of Georgia. This collection documents historic preservation efforts around the state. Much of the research material in this collection relates to the areas surrounding Milledgeville and Baldwin County. Specifically, the collection contains extensive reasearch material relating to the old Georgia State House and Mt. Nebo.
