The Papers of Monsignor John O'Connor (1870-1952) are also a part of the G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection.

In 1921 O'Connor was present at Chesterton's reception into the Catholic Church. The papers of Monsignor O'Connor include a number of manuscripts of his poems and essays, Christmas greetings from the Chesterton's, personal letters, and newspaper clippings by and about Chesterton.
