The Quakers of Iowa




Louis Thomas Jones



Editorís Introduction


This volume on The Quakers of Iowa was written by Dr. Jones at the request of The State Historical Society of Iowa. For the task the author was peculiarly fitted both by the temperament and by training. Moreover, his membership in the Society of Friends gave him ready access to much material which an outsider could not have hoped to obtain.


††††††††††† Although the Quakers have not been numerous in Iowa, the influence of their attitude toward life has been considerable in the history of the Commonwealth.
