About the Author(s)

Albert Fowler first heard of the Religious Society of Friends as a student at Haverford College in the mid nineteen-twenties. Attending weekly Quaker meetings for four years with Rufus Jones and William Wistar Comfort drew him toward the Society. He became a member of the Religious Society of Friends in Syracuse, New York, during the Second World War. He brought with him a long heritage of liberal Presbyterianism. During 1947, he edited the book War and Civilization, Selections from a Study of History by Arnold Toynbee. At roughly the same time he spent a year in residence at Pendle Hill with his wife, Helen Fowler. The two of them later started the Literary Magazine Approach and the Ahab press in Rosemont, Pennsylvania. While living in the Philadelphia area, he took membership at Radnor Monthly Meeting, and was active within Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
