Lowenbach Congregational and UCC Collection

The former Harry and Cora Lowenbach Room housed monographic materials related to early Congregationalism and the United Church of Christ. It also included rare books, UCC periodical materials, Community Renewal Society documents, Congregational church records, and miscellanous sermons.

The Campbell Morgan Collection

The Library houses the most complete collection of the works of the Rev. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan, one of the most outstanding preachers of the twentieth century. In 2000, the Morgan family donated G. Campbell Morgan's books and documents, including Morgan's handwritten Sermon Register along with original manuscripts of his sermon notes. The Collection contains his sermons, writings, books, newspaper clips, lecture notes, photographs, and other archival materials. The Learning Commons created a small Digital Collection that presents indexes of all sermon titles, digital copies of selected sermon notes, and a detailed list of all archival materials available to researchers.
