Biographical / Historical
Mary Stone McDowell, a graduate of Swarthmore College class of 1897, was a birthright Quaker school teacher whom the New York City Board of Education dismissed on charges of disloyalty based on her refusal as a Quaker to sign a loyalty pledge during World War I. Reinstated in 1923, she retired in 1943, and became a war tax resister, continuing her pacifist stance against military spending until her death in 1955.
