Drew Pearson

​Drew Pearson (December 13, 1897 - September 1, 1969) was a journalist from a Quaker family. In the 1940's and 50's he had an influential political gossip column in The Washington Post called The Merry Go Round. He is best known for exposing congressional corruption and standing up to Senator Joseph McCarthy and his committee on Un-American activities.
 ​Quaker simplicity is sometimes called Quaker Grey.

It used to be that Friends wore very plain old fashioned clothing. The men wore black and the women wore grey. They did this because they thought people should spend their time and money doing good works, not worrying about what they wear. Now most Quakers just wear what everyone else does - they just don't worry about fancy labels and what is the latest style. Practical colors like brown, buff, and grey are often used for paint and carpets at Quaker Meetings.
