The papers revolve around three principals and provide a picture of Quakers in Palestine in the 20th century: Khalil Totah, his second wife, Eva Marshall Totah and his first wife, Ermina Jones Totah. Khalil Totah (1886-1955) was born in Ramallah, Palestine. He bagan his schooling in Ramallah, later a Quaker school in Brummana, Lebanon and in Jerusalem. He taught English at Friends Boys Training School in Ramallah, then studied at Friends Oak Grove Seminary in Vassalboro, ME and Clark College in Worcester, MA. He became principal of Friends Boys School, Ramallah, Palestine. He became a minister in the Society of Friends He received his M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1917 and 1926 respectively. From 1945-50, he was the Exec. Dir. of the Institute of Arab American Affairs, N.Y. He. married Ermina Jones in 1916, later Eva Marshall. Ermina Jones Totah (1892-1928) came with Khalil Totah to Ramallah, Palestine, and was a teacher at the Friends Boys School. Eva Marshall Totah (c. 1896-1990) studied at William Penn College and received her B.A. from Penn College and her M.A. from Haverford College in 1919. (A copy of her thesis, "Settlement Music Schools: a Study and Interpretation," is in the college's archives). In 1927, she went to Ramallah to teach at the Friends School and married Khalil Totah in 1928. In 1944 they emigrated to the U.S. She taught English, drama, dance, speech, religion and other subjects at Friends schools and elsewhere. Her interests included a half-way house for women in California and the Crenshaw House for men. At the time of her death, Totah was a member of Whittier First Friends Meeting in California. In the papers, Khalil Totah discusses the situation in Palestine, primarily in the 1930s, speaks of his own life and aspirations, as when he became a Quaker minister. His diaries expand the picture, adding information about Friends Boys School in Ramallah (Palestine) and his understanding of the political situation, again primarily in the 1930s. The photographs add the dimension of geography, placing Totah at Oak Grove Seminary, Clark College and at the Institute of Arab American Affairs. Eva Marshall Totah has the largest quantity of correspondence, primarily 1920s and 1930s, which provides great detail to the life and work at the Friends School in Ramallah, the character and growing relationship with Khalil Totah and domestic issues. The papers of Ermina Jones Totah portray an earnest and dedicated teacher and wife, but carry little detail. (View full finding aid.)
