Biographical / Historical
In 1828, Baltimore Monthly Meeting had a Preparative Meeting for the Eastern District and one for the Western District. After the Separation, Orthodox Friends combined the two meetings, renaming the new meeting as "Baltimore Preparative Meeting of Friends for the Eastern and Western Districts in Unity with the Ancient Yearly Meeting of Friends." Baltimore Quarterly Meeting laid down this meeting in 1873. Five years later, under direction of a new Discipline, the duties of Ministers and Elders were combined with those of the Overseers, and a new body of Ministry and Oversight was created to be known as "Baltimore Preparative Meeting for Ministry and Oversight." By 1906, the modifier "Preparative" was dropped.
