Quaker Women: Friends Pamphlet Groups

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


FPG, or Friends Pamphlet Group, contains six distinct collections of Quaker pamphlets. We classify any publication 49 pages or fewer as a "pamphlet". Pamphlets are housed in a separate location. A member of the Archives' staff will need to assist you if you wish to study them.

  • FPG 1: Meeting related publications/materials
  • FPG 2: Quaker educational institutions
  • FPG 3: Quaker organizations such as AFSC
  • FPG 4.1: Quaker authors (Mostly not by Earlham faculty)
  • FPG 4.2 Subjects (Alphabetical order by topic)
  • FPG 6: Family files, Biographical Materials

Note: If it is by written by someone, it’s in FPG 4.1, but if it’s biographical, it’s in FPG 6. Example: pamphlets written by William Penn are in 4.1, but biographical materials written about William Penn are in 6.

A member of the Archives' staff will be happy to assist you if you wish to study documents in our pamphlet collection.
