Henry J Cadbury: Scholar, Activist, Disciple
Cadbury's accomplishments and commitments reached into many worlds. He was widely acknowledged as an author and as a biblical scholar and translator. He was a professor at Harvard Divinity School, Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges, and Pendle Hill. A strong and steady voice for peace and racial justice, he lived his faith through social action. For Henry Cadbury, that activism was expressed principally through the AFSC, of which he was a founder and long-time board chair. Margaret Hope Bacon, the Quaker historian who was his associate at AFSC for many years, draws upon her unique perspective to acquaint readers with his full and rich life.
