While the scrapbook creators and assembly dates remain unknown, the articles included in the scrapbooks cover the period between the early 1940s and 1990. 

The early scrapbooks focus on Basic Magnesium, Inc. (BMI) as well as on activities related to national mining efforts, magnesium, and light metal production and use. Later scrapbooks include articles about Henderson-area politics, economics, organizations, and events.
