  • Harry Neitz Sermons

    The Harry Neitz Sermons include sermon outlines, full-text sermons, and sermon notes without outlines written by Rev. Neitz during his ministry. The documents are handwritten in the English language, but the collection contains twelve German language sermons as well. Harry was the son of Solomon Neitz, a famous Evangelical preacher who was considered "the most eloquent orator" of the German language in America during his lifetime. Two of the sermons are ascribed to the Rev. Solomon Neitz. The sermons in the collection were preached on multiple dates and at multiple locations, presumably by Harry, according to notations on the documents.

    These sermons were given to the Rev. W.E. Pottieger (see related collection HC-88) during his pastorate in Millersburg, PA, at Grace Evangelical United Brethren Church. When Rev. Pottieger received them, they were in the possession of descendants of the Rev. Neitz. Dr. Cecil P. E. Pottieger, Rev. Pottieger's son, donated HC-28 to the Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage in 1980.

    The collection occupies 2 boxes (1 linear foot of shelf space) and consists of two series: Neitz Sermons and Index. The index was prepared by United staff members while processing the collection 2007-2008. Wheeler Hall provided United images of the handwritten sermons. View a sample of the collection here:
