Historical Note

The material in this collection was gathered from various sources and reflects an eclectic mix of writings by and about Quakers in the 19th and 20th centuries. Quaker peace material was often removed from the Friends Historical Library at Swarthmore College, and given to the Peace Collection; however, this is no longer necessarily true, and scholars should consult FHL for other, and/or more, recently donated material.
