Series 7: Oversize Materials [series]:

Oversize materials are items that were too large to house in normal sized Hollinger boxes and are kept separately for preservation considerations. Materials are kept in large oversize boxes, except for the posters and awards which are kept loosely. These items consist of two commemorative plates, posters, a wire sculpture of an amino acid structure, and Anfinsen's typewriter.
