The Abraham A. Huebert fonds consists of a small amount of correspondence, some poetry created by Huebert, and many Russian and German sermon notes written by him. Most of these are on very small pieces of paper, closely written, on both sides. Some of these notes have been transliterated by his daughter Anna (Mrs. Isaac Thiessen, Toronto).

The Abraham A. Unruh fonds consists of sermons and teaching notes, typed in the English language, relating to his missionary work in India and letters to and from A.H. Unruh pertaining to the Board of Reference and Counsel of the Canadian Conference of MB Churches. The letters are now located with the Reference and Counsel collection. This fonds documents well the transition that Mennonite Brethren missionaries faced when policies changed from leading dependent mission churches to fostering indigenous churches. Reports, minutes, and correspondence show the changes that missionaries faced and their responses to those changes. The CMBS tape collection holds two tapes of A.A. Unruh speaking to the family upon the 50th anniversary of their coming to Canada (1975). The photographs are of missionaries from the Mennonite Brethren Church in Russia.

The A.H. Unruh fonds reflects Unruh's life as a preacher, teacher, and writer. It consists of sermons, some typed, many handwritten in the Gothic script. Most of Unruh's sermons are undated but his later sermons are recognizable by larger writing because his eye-sight was failing. Some sermons are in published form, cut out from various periodicals, many from The Voice, the MBBC periodical. In the fonds are Unruh's lecture notes from his teaching career at Pniel Bible School and at Mennonite Brethren Bible College. Records that document his writing are early Bible School textbooks, pamphlets, many articles, and his manuscript of Die Geschichte der Mennoniten-Bruedergemeinde. The book itself is in the J.A. Toews library. The CMBS audio-collection holds 46 casette tapes and 7 reel to reel tapes of Unruh's sermons. Also included are tapes of special occasions such as ordinations, the Unruhs' Golden Anniversary, and wedding sermons, and Unruh's funeral. Some of the records in this fonds are dated after Unruh's death because A.A. Unruh (son) seems to have added to the collection.
