Special Collections: Kirby Page


Kirby Page (1890-1957), a self-described “social evangelist” and “prophet for peace,” became a well-known (some would say notorious) pacifist after World War I. He was one of the editors of The World Tomorrow, a widely known radical pacifist periodical that ran from 1918 through the 1930s, as well as one of the founders of the Fellowship of Reconciliation ( Page’s correspondence with family, friends, colleagues, and supporters are included in the collection, as are manuscripts of his partially completed autobiography and biography of Sherwood Eddy, his mentor and fellow FOR founder. There are also hundreds of newspaper clippings.

The majority of Page's writing and correspondence is available free and online at the Internet Archive. The physical collection has been transferred to the Disciples Historical Society in Bethany, West Virginia.
