The Matthew Nowicki Drawings and Other Material contain architectural drawings and sketches, but it also includes his writings as well as biographical sketches written about Nowicki. Writings by Nowicki include a speech and several articles on architectural design. Documents written about Nowicki include newspaper and magazine articles, mostly composed after his death, and several biographical compilations of Nowicki's work. Along with Nowicki's drawings and sketches for the North Carolina State Fairgrounds and Dorton Arena, there are preliminary drawings that were done for Mayer and Whittlesey in 1950, drawings for the city of Chandigarh in Punjab, and a three-dimensional model of Dorton Arena.

It should be noted that the authorship of many of the drawings cannot necessarily be assumed to be exclusively by Nowicki alone, and may also represent the work of Nowicki's wife, Stanislawa (Siasia), and/or others involved with his projects.

Matthew Nowicki (1910-1950), born Maciej Nowicki, was a professor of Architecture and served as the acting Head of the Department of Architecture at North Carolina State College (1948-1950). He studied at the Chicago Art Institute (1922), the School of Design of Gerson-Warsaw (1925-1926), the School of Mehofer-Cracow (1927), and the Polytechnic of Warsaw (1925-1926). Nowicki was born in Chita, Russia and later married artist Stanislowa Sandeck. He designed the interiors of the Carolina Country Club in Raleigh and was a design consultant to William H. Deitrick for Dorton Arena. He also did consulting on a State Archives and Museum building (unbuilt) and was a member of the design team for the headquarters of the United Nations. He died in a plane crash over Egypt in 1950 while flying back to the United States from India.
