This series contains photographs, correspondence, clippings, articles, and research notes on a wide array of decorative arts topics, which were originally stored together in a single letterbox and several folders. The title "Miscellaneous Subjects," stems from Selina Fletcher Little's classification of the box and folders. The subjects covered in this series include furniture and decorative objects, with several folders dedicated to boxes, blanket chests, and lighting devices. These decorative arts-related topics overlap with some of Nina Fletcher Little's other research files, particularly the Furniture series and the Sculpture series.

The papers were found arranged in a single letterbox and several loose folders. According to Selina Fletcher Little, the folders were associated with the box, but could not fit inside. The letterbox featured alphabetical dividers, with a mixture of loose papers and folders sorted therein. The organizational efforts of Selina Fletcher Little were evident through her post-it notes, paperclips, and edits made to the box label and the box index.

While the papers were removed from the letterboxes in order to provide archival housing, their exact arrangement has been preserved. The actual letterbox, located at the end of the collection, now contains only the alphabetical dividers and a handwritten index on the inside cover.
