Born in Czechoslovakia, Zubek came to Canada with his parents at an early age. After obtaining his B.A. at the University of British Columbia and his Masters degree from the University of Toronto, he graduated with a doctorate in psychology from John Hopkins University in 1950. After serving as assistant professor for three years at McGill University, Zubek came to the University of Manitoba as professor and head of the new Department of Psychology in 1953. In 1961 he was appointed research professor of psychology and became internationally known for his writings and research in the fields of psychophysiology and sensory deprivation.

The collection is heavily research-oriented consisting of his experiment notes, publications, submissions for publications, and various research findings and papers primarily concerning his sensory deprivation experiments of the 1960's and early 1970's. There is also a small amount of personal correspondence.
