Rufus Jones (1863-1948) was the co-founder of the American Friends Service Committee, which has won the Nobel Peace Prize. This 40 minute video documents the life of an eminent historian of Quaker spiritual life who also taught philosophy at Haverford College, in Pennsylvania.
His life so greatly inspired Frederic G. Corneel (1922-2001), a prominent Boston Quaker and tax attorney, that he decided to underwrite a documentary about Jones' life and work. Through Haverford College he sought other Quakers who would share his passion and commitment to the project.
The production was written and produced by Sharon Mullally and Barbara Attie and has aired on WHYY in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Corneel also produced an accompanying booklet, The Rufus Jones Companion, which contains selections of Jones' writings.
The video and booklet are available from Wellesley Monthly Meeting of
Friends. They can be purchased separately for $12.50 each or as a package
for $25. Friends General Conference
Bookstore also sells the video and the booklet, packaged together,
for $25. Type your information in the form below, print this page and
