• The Journal of the Friends Historical Society

    The Journal of the Friends Historical Society began in 1904 to promote the study of Quaker History and to increase the knowledge of the religious beliefs of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The scope is broad and includes detailed examination of some aspects of Quaker history and the lives and influence of individuals who have had an impact on the Society of Friends whether Quakers or not, to more wide ranging analysis of social and religious trends. Occasional supplements have been issued when the editor has received submissions considered too lengthy for an issue but of sufficient importance to warrant publication. Book reviews are a standard feature. There are occasional illustrations. Indexing has been irregular and sometimes selective. A cumulative typescript index was made in the late 1960s.
