QRT #133 – Oregon Yearly Meeting and the Peace Testimony, Part I: Navigating Evangelicalism and Quakerism, 1938-1954, Part I – By Cherice Bock

In the first of a two-part series, Cherice Bock contributed “Oregon Yearly Meeting and the Peace Testimony, Part I: Navigating Evangelicalism and Quakerism, 1938-1954,” based on interviews and archival research she conducted with her late grandfather, Ralph Beebe. In this article, Bock details Oregon Yearly Meeting’s approach to the peace testimony during World War II and the Korean War, and shares the stories and beliefs of Quaker men faced with the military draft in these years. She analyzes the balance between particularly Quaker beliefs and evangelicalism in this yearly meeting as Evangelical Friends began.
