Overview Walter B. Fulghum's dissertation "Quaker Influences on Whitman's Religious Thought" analyzes the influences of Quakerism, particularly the influences of Elias Hicks and Hicksite Quakerism, on Walt Whitman's religious thought. The manuscript discusses ways in which Whitman's personal demeanor and behavior reflected a Quaker influence, and connects Quakerism to the themes in Whitman's "Leaves of Grass."
