Historical note

Woodbrooke, a Quaker study center, was founded in 1903. John Wilhelm Rowntree (1868-1905) had previously led a campaign amongst Friends for a permanent settlement for religious and social study. Within a few years, Quaker and local chocolate maker George Cadbury (1839 – 1922) had been inspired to offer his former home for this purpose.

The Woodbrookers in America (sometimes referred to as the "Old Woodbrookers") was a Quaker organization based in the U.S. that shared similar goals with the Woodbrooke center in Britain.

Acquisition

The Woodbrookers in America records were donated to Quaker & Special Collections, Haverford College, in 2002 by Ian Jackson, Librarian, Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre.
