The correspondence begins after Swarsensky left Germany and arrived in the United States in 1939 and continues through 1981, shortly before his death. He wrote just a few letters each year, but these letters usually contain very detailed updates on his life. The first letters provide a wealth of information about his immigration and his first years in the United States. Also included in this collection are several speeches and sermons Manfred Swarsensky gave and articles he wrote for the Aufbau in New York and the Wisconsin State Journal as well as a detailed account about his immigration, which he wrote shortly after his arrival in 1939. In addition, there are articles about Manfred Swarsensky and many obituaries.
