Historical Note

Woodbrooke, a Quaker study center in England, 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 United States that shared similar goals with the Woodbrooke Center in England.
