The collection Gerhard Family Scrapbooks contains newspaper clippings, handwritten notes, obituaries and programs that provide information about this local family. All three volumes contain articles about family weddings and deaths of family members. The remaining items are on a variety of subjects. Book 1 contributes articles pertaining to local Lancaster churches. There is some information about the Gerhard family, but very few items are about Harrisburg. The majority of Jac. A. Gerhard's scrapbook is about religion, religious ceremonies, the Missionary Society and churches. Other topics within the book are the Goethean Literary Society, Linden Hall and poetry. Book 2 has articles about M.U. Gerhard's career at the State Lunatic Asylum and his associates such as Dr. John L. Atlee, Dr. J.G. Gerhard, Rev. Dr. C.S. Gerhard and Rev. Dr. John Williamson Nevin. There are some interesting articles that discuss the rise of female doctors. Wrightsville, Lancaster, Columbia, and Harrisburg are mentioned in some of the articles. Book 3 displays the most information concerning family weddings and obituaries. James A. Gerhard gathered newspaper clippings pertaining to his family's social life, education, employment and private life. An article of interest is about the children's story, The Night Before Christmas
