The bulk of the collection is professional correspondence. Wiggins maintained long-term contact with a number of prominent botanists and participated in many professional exchanges of information and specimens, often dealing with identification of certain flora. His field trips are described in great detail in this correspondence as well as in the various reports he wrote. There is correspondence on his work with the Belvedere Scientific Fund in Baja California and Stanford University correspondence relating to his administrative duties over the years. Also included are files relating to Wiggins' duties with the American Fern Society and the Arctic Institute of North America. Additional papers (added in 1983 and 1986) also include papers relating to Wiggin's work in Ecuador, 1944; notes from field trips to the Sonoran desert, 1926-37; and collected materials and drafts of biographies on A. W. C. T. Herre, Gilbert M. Smith, and Carl B. Wolf.
