The earliest documents in this decimal file concern the celebration of the golden jubilee of the reign of Nicholas I. Later correspondence, memoranda, reports, and published documents report the exile of Nicholas I after the invasion of Montenegro by Austrian and Hungarian armies and the subsequent occupation by Serbia (now part of Yugoslavia). The majority of the documents are protests by supporters of self-determination for Montenegro, remonstrations against annexation by Serbia, and appeals for representation at the peace conference. Several documents discuss student protest against Serbian rule. Exiled government officials published a number of the included documents from their base in Rome from 1920 to 1921. Other subjects documented are the exploitation of the economy by Austria and Bulgaria, and the role of the Red Cross, the United States Food Administration, and the British Mission of Relief in aiding Albanian refugees in Montenegro.

A complete list of the documents is on the first reel. The documents are arranged by subject according to the Department of State's decimal system.
