1941-1946
Extent: 3 linear feet
This collection consists primarily of the publications of conscientious objectors (COs) working at Civilian Public Service camps during World War II, performing "work of national importance" in lieu of combat. Camps were established for various purposes, from firefighting in the rural West to caring for mental patients and the elderly. The publications cover areas across the United States, although are focused in the Northeast, Upper Midwest and California. Two publications appear to be from outside the United States. Publications range from the very basic (a single sheet of typewritten paper announcing the week's events) to the elaborate (50-page magazines on glossy paper with black-and-white photographs) and cover all aspects of the lives of COs--the banal and mundane as well as the profound. Many publications intermittently published tables of all men who were in that specific camp at the time, or of all men who had passed through the camp. Publication frequency ranged from weekly to quarterly. A few other publications are also included, which were not directly published by COs but which share pacifist leanings or are otherwise related.

Creator:
Elkington, Peter W.
Elkinton, Howard W. (Howard West) , 1892-1955

Extent: 27 boxes
This is the story of multiple generations of the Elkinton and Waring families, but concentrated on two generations: that of Howard West Elkinton (1892-1955) and his wife, Katharine Wistar Mason Elkinton (1892/3-1961) and their daughter, Theodora Elkinton (1927- ) who married Thomas Waring (1921-2001). It is a story of life choices made by these Quakers: for Howard and Katharine Elkinton, to serve under the American Friends Service Committee in Europe after World War I and during World War II providing relief aid and for Theodora and Tom Waring to continue this tradition serving in Finland after World War II and then in the field of education in the United States.
