Quaker Women: Microfilm Records

Resources on Quaker Women in the Earlham College Archive and Friends Collection


The Friends Collection and Earlham College Archives has a ScanPro 3000 Microfilm reader. It can print, e-mail, save to PDF, save images for papers, and so much more. If you have never used a microfilm reader before or are just unfamiliar with the ScanPro 3000, a member of the Archives' staff would be happy to assist you.

Microfilm Records

Our microfilm collections contains records of Quaker women's activities, namely diaries, scrapbooks, and memoirs. Whereas the unpublished print records of Quaker women in the archive focus on Midwestern Quaker women, the microfilm includes records of Quaker women from around the United States and Britain. Some of the microfilm reels in the collection that may be of particular interest to someone researching Quaker women are listed below:


MR 9: The Diaries of Elizabeth Fry, 1797-1845
