Biographical / Historical
John Cary was born in Baltimore on Oct. 28, 1923. He moved to Berlin, Germany in 1930 with his family, including younger sister Ellen, when his father was asked by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and German Quakers to act as Secretary of the International Quaker Bureau which sought to assist German Jews. Returning to Baltimore in 1935, he attended Baltimore Friends School. He graduated from the George School in 1941 and entered Haverford College, just in time for Pearl Harbor and the draft. His Quaker beliefs and ideals led him to seek successfully conscientious objector (CO) status. In 1946, he returned to Haverford, finished his degree in German and then went on to take a doctorate at Johns Hopkins. In 1951, just before finishing the degree, he met and married Catharine Brinton, with whom he had four children. He taught German at Haverford Colege for 37 years. He died in 2016.
