Parent Institution: Tri-College Consortium

About:

The Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College and Haverford College Quaker & Special Collections are two major depositories for the records of North American yearly meetings of the Society of Friends. For researchers' convenience, the two libraries have collaborated on this joint catalog. In some cases, a single meeting's records may be divided between Haverford and Swarthmore, but all the records are described together in this catalog.

Both Haverford and Swarthmore hold records from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting and Baltimore Yearly Meeting, with Haverford holding the majority of Orthodox meetings and Swarthmore holding the majority of Hicksite meetings. Swarthmore is the official depository for New York Yearly Meeting. Additional yearly meetings and individual monthly meetings have opted to use Haverford or Swarthmore as their official depository.
