Saturday, September 11, 2010

September 7, 2010


Allen Jay is considered one of the most remarkable Friends of the 19th century.  Join Joshua Brown, editor of the new edition of Jay's autobiography; Tom Hamm, Earlham Archivist; and Max Carter, who has done extensive research on Jay's work as they share insights into one of the best-known Quakers of the 19th century.

The Symposium includes a visit to Earlham Friends Collection, a tour of campus as Jay knew it, a visit to his grave in the Earlham Cemetery, a visit to West Richmond Friends Meeting and, on Sunday, a visit to Farmer's Institute in West Lafayette, IN, where Jay and his wife Martha lived before and during the Civil War.
