Historical Background
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.

Collection Overview
All or part of this collection is stored off-site. Researchers must use the microfilm set either on-site or reels can be ordered through interlibrary loan. Please contact the Curator at least two weeks in advance of a visit to the Peace Collection to discuss your research needs.

This material was formerly in 6 boxes. Boxes 7-9 contained material from the Philadelphia Peace Association of Friends and the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Arch Street), which was transferred to the Friends Historical Library in 1981. This material was microfilmed before its transferal and is available on reel 83:5.

The collection was microfilmed by Alpha Systems in May 1979 under N.E.H. Grant #RC-27706-77-739.
