Worrall, Jay, Jr., 1916-
Extent: 13 boxes
Jay Wesley Worrall Jr. (1916-2010) was born in Pennsylvania and graduated from Haverford College in 1937. During WWII, he served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps. In 1942, he married Carolyn Randal. After the war, he worked as a marketing manager and joined the Religious Society of Friends, a member of Reading Meeting. He served again in the military during the Korean War. He was an active participant in the civil rights movement and worked to assist prisoners in reentering society. After his retirement, he wrote The Friendly Virginians: America's First Quakers, regarded as the most comprehensive history of the Quakers in Virginia from colonial to modern times. The collection consists of hand-written index cards contained in 13 boxes comprising information gained through research by Jay Worrall Jr. on Quaker families and individuals and Quaker Meetings in Virginia, as well as a bibliography, exhaustively researched by Worrall toward his 1994 book The Friendly Virginians: America's First Quakers and a companion volume he was working on relating to Quaker families in Virginia.
