The Alice Shaffer papers document the life and work of a Quaker social worker and humanitarian who was one of Earlham College's most distinguished alumni. They include correspondence, notebooks, photographs, and reports from her work in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
Her papers include letters that reflect communication and connections among the small group of Conservative Friends in New Jersey, New York, and Ohio for much of her life. Correspondence constitutes the most significant portion of this collection. Included are letters from Cyrus Cooper of Ohio and William C. Cowperthwaite of Philadelphia, as well as family letters, which illustrate the nature of Conservative docterine and theology in the first half of the twentieth century.
This collection, although small, contains invaluable material documenting the history of pastoral Friends, especially in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
The collection consists of material relating to the life of Garaldine Cox Leatherock (1901-1989), Earlham College class of 1923 and and a Friend of Sand Creek-Aazalia Meeting in Batholomew County, Indiana.
