History of Quakers in Alaska

To complete for 1976 publication a history of the Quakers in Alaska, focusing upon the point (the Bering Straits) and the time (1870's to 1970's) where subsistence society and technological society met and were tested for survival. As the imported colonists of Pennsylvania contributed to American constitutional history certain concepts of freedom and justice, so also the indigenous members of the new "holy experiment" in the Kobuk and Noatak regions of arctic Alaska are contributing concepts of community to America's new social crisis. In 1973 P.I. co-authored with Hugh Barbour of Earlham College Early Quaker Writings.
