Wallingford, Pa., 1947.

This is an extra-long pamphlet, 89 pages, about the early history of Quakers in America and their influence on American democracy and the Constitution, and on various movements and institutions. These include, among others, the treatment of Native Americans, ending slavery, women's rights, and prison reform. While it is interesting and informative, and there is much to celebrate in this Quaker history, I think today it would be written a little more humbly.
