Quaker Strongrooms

A blog from the Library of the UK Society of Friends, Quaker Strongrooms has been posting items on printed and archival resources for researching World War I and its aftermath.

The most recent post provides an overview of the Library’s visual resources for World War I.

Previous posts cover:

  • a photograph album of Alan Burtt, Friends Ambulance Unit SSA19
  • periodicals
  • peace pamphlets
  • Wartime Statistics Committee
  • Friends Ambulance Unit
  • prison experiences of conscientious objectors
  • Friends Peace Committee

There's also coverage of the white feather diaries, an online Quaker storytelling project to mark the centenary of World War I, publishing the diaries of those who opposed WWI believing to refuse to kill is a cause worth dying for.
