Quakers: General

Subseries documents Dr. Franklin’s involvement with the Quaker community, as a member of Toronto Monthly Meeting and as a clerk of the Peace Committee of the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC).

Activities documented include campaigns for disarmament, the Cruise Missile Conversion Project, attempts to set up a Quaker Study Centre at King City, demonstrations at the radar base of La Macaza, briefing the Lamarsh Commission, and many more. Records include minutes from the General Meetings and Peace Committees, material related to various CFSC conferences, gatherings, and institutes, papers and reports, media coverage, public education literature, briefs, newsletters, and correspondence.

The series also includes records relating to the operation by Canadian Quakers of the Peace Centre on Grindstone Island in the Rideau Lakes. This includes documents internal to the Quaker operation and the work of the peace education secretary Murray Thomson. According to Dr. Franklin, much of the work around the Grindstone Island programs was controversial, not only with respect to Canadian public opinion, but also within certain more traditional elements of the Quaker community. Records relating to Grindstone Island include minutes, internal documents, reports, programs and photographs. Included is also Thirty-one Hours, the printed transcript of the 1965 Summer Institute on Non-Violence, which was an exercise in non-violence. The transcript is an important original document of the responses of a pacifist community to a real and life-threatening attack.
