The collection includes his letters home to Nina Cox, his fiancée, and hers to him, before, during his imprisonment, and afterwards. Also, there are a few letters to his family while he was a POW and letters and cards from friends. The collection also includes a transcript of a self-interview done in 2001. The collection also includes from Fink's time as a POW: a knife, fork, spoon, POW dog tag, and a hand made Christmas menu. The collection also includes a laminated letter to his father in 1943, when it was believed he was KIA, before they knew he had been taken prisoner. Plus, there are two long letters and a smaller one, deliberately torn into pieces as a puzzle. With the envelope, on the flap is "Surprise! Don't read any further unless you have some spare time and a flat surface. Your Big Tease." This is from Nina Cox, to her fiancé and later husband, Loren, postmarked 19 May 1943. And, there are two long letters: one is a 82"-long letter written by Cox to Fink, March 1943. The other, 54", is also from Cox: "To a Swell Fellow in the Air Corps! Bet this is the Longest Letter You Ever Get" printed on front of envelope, postmarked 21 December 1942. Also, there are government documents, a few photos, issues of "Ex-POW Bulletin" (1995-1997), a copy of an article from "The Man's Magazine" on the mission of the 8th Air Force on the ball-bearing factories in Schweinfurt, Germany, and a 2000 calendar from American ExPOWs. Artifacts include his POW badge, foreign currency, and Nazi memorabilia that Fink picked up when his POW camp was liberated.
