Scope and Contents This collection contains the minutes from 1845 - 1852, from the Free Produce Association of the Friends of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. George W. Taylor was the secretary of the organization, at least for the duration of this minute book. The minutes contain finance reports, nominations for officiers, and reports from various committees, including reports from a committee delegated to be in correspondence with Quakers in England doing similar work.
Overview This collection traces several generations of the Quaker Taylor family, but centers on Francis R. Taylor (1884-1947) and George Washington Taylor (1803-1891). The former was an attorney and collector of information about his own and related families, as well as local historical information. The latter, who ran a free produce store in Philadelphia in the period before the American Civil War, was connected through his interests in free labor to many correspondents.
