The collection contains the manuscript of an article he wrote for The Lutheran Witness and a letter of 18 November 1945 from Munich, Germany, to Rev. Alfred Doerffler describing post-war Germany, the Lutheran Church there and the Polish Lutheran Church in Exile in London.
The majority of this collection focuses on post-World War 2 Asia (especially Japan) Missions. There are photos, films, artifacts, papers, and reports. Includes a Concordia Triglotta with marginalia. The photos are generally Concordia Seminary (Saint Louis, Missouri: circa. 1937). There is also some correspondence, manuscripts and printed material from a separate accessioning.
The collection consists of letters from Tschopp to his parents and siblings. The letters "reveal the importance of family relationships and a strong support system from family and friends, but also the paramount position that the church and religious background played during those troublesome times" (from the Foreword by his wife, Dorothy, to the published collection of letters, 2000.)
