A biography of former AFSC Executive Secretary Clarence Pickett.

Clarence Pickett, Quaker farm boy from Kansas and elder statesman of his era, inspired humanitarian service activities; economic and social rebuilding in Appalachia during the depression; the rescue of refugees from Europe and in the Middle East; the creation of alternative service for pacifists in World War II; and postwar non-confrontational intergovernmental dialogue. The farm boy never lost his deep faith God and in his fellow humans, or sense of humor. Larry Miller’s biography inspires us to apply Clarence Pickett’s compassionate peace-building strategies to the new-old problems of the twenty-first century; demilitarization, economic justice, protection of all life, peaceful relations between states and peoples – and the need for love and joy.” —Elise Boulding, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Dartmouth College
