The Myers-Liebegott Papers is a small collection, but it contains some powerful photographs and documents. The information about the Gettysburg College trip to Harlem, contained in Series 3 is particularly interesting for capturing images and information of Harlem during the late 1960s and as documentation of the social activism of the Office of the Chaplain. Copies of Forty Acres and a Mule, published by students on the Educational Program of the New York Urban League are presumably connected to this trip.

Another interesting item in this collection is a 1948 letter written by a German woman, appealing to Charles E. Liebegott for financial or other assistance.
