Biographical / Historical

Organized as the Frankford Peace Council, this was an interdenominational peace group growing out of the joint concerns of Frankford (Philadelphia) Friends who were members of the Quaker meetings at Oxford and Penn Streets and Unity and Waln Streets. In order to include a broader group of denominations as well as a wider geographic area, the name was changed to the Peace Council of Northeast Philadelphia. Walter C. Longstreth, a leading Philadelphia Quaker, and Wayne Dockthorn of the Fellowship of Reconciliation were among the leaders who enlisted participation by ministers from churches in the area. Monthly meetings, peace rallies, and special speakers were among the Council's activities.
