Ken Carroll: Quaker History
Third Haven Friends Meeting: Honoring Ken Carroll, 1 May 2011 [cached]
"Ken, you're a tough act to follow.
Ken's career as a professor of Religious studies flourished at Southern Methodist University in Dallas beginning in 1952, lasting 35 years before he returned back here to the Eastern Shore and to settle down in Easton.
Ken's travels and studies back in the '60's and 70's, led him to persuade notable visitors to visit us here later...from Japan, Ireland and England. On a sabbatical in '69 & '70 Ken spent a year's study @ Haverford as the T. Wistar Brown Fellow.
He became a member of Third Haven in 1986 and began at once, serving on Worship and Ministry. At the request of the Meeting, Ken wrote "300 Years and More of Third Haven Quakerism" to help us celebrate that anniversary in the mid '80s. (not incidentally, copies are available today for purchase in the Common Room)
Ken was asked to serve as our clerk in 1988 and did so until 2001... some 13 years at the helm. During that time he gave a variety of talks on numerous topics including the creation of the Bible; on the life and teachings of Jesus... as well as on many aspects of Quakerism. During Ken's leadership as clerk, we experienced growth in numbers and diversity and the beginnings of Wednesday evening worship. Introductions of new visitors became common place at the rise of meeting.
Ken, we thank you. We thank you not only for you past contributions but for your continued presence; often high-lighted during worship with your inspiration and words of wisdom... sometimes salted with warm humor. And today, in some way, we want to mark our appreciation for your leadership and service.
As a result, Friends have felt called to raise funds in your honor and, in the process, have arranged to have a large, finely-crafted, custom cherry table with your name on it to be placed in the new, expanded Maryland Room of the new Talbot County library. This is done in recognition of your contribution to passing along local Quaker history to this generation and those to come. Ken, the flow of gratitude and funds keeps coming and, as a result, we're now able to also add a very substantial sum to Third Haven's youth scholarship endowment fund in your name. I want to thank those generous contributors.... but, even more to the point today...
...we say: "Thank you, Ken, for your contribution to our future.""

It was so nice for those who traveled from a distance to enjoy the Meeting for Worship, Larny Claggett's presentation, Ken Carroll's lecture, and then to have such a delicious meal. What a delightful day., 25 Jan 2006 [cached]

Kenneth L. Carroll Scholarship ... [cached]
Kenneth L. Carroll Scholarship for Biblical and Quaker Studies This Pendle Hill scholarship has been established as an endowment to support and encourage persons with serious interest in the study of the Bible and Quaker faith and practice. It is hoped that the work resulting from their study will be shared with others as part of encouraging the nurturance and development of Friends Meetings. Kenneth L. Carroll is the former president of the Friends Historical Association in the United States and the Friends Historical Society in the United Kingdom. A convinced Friend (while a graduate student at Duke), he helped found the Dallas (Texas) Friends Meeting in 1952. He was professor of Religious Studies at Southern Methodist University, where he taught for 34 years; is the author of numerous books and articles (some in Swarthmore College's collection); and was clerk of Third Haven Friends Meeting in Easton, Maryland, U.S.A. He has contributed to the work of the American Friends Service Committee (chairing their SW regional committee), the Friends World Committee for Consultation (where he chaired the nominating committee for the national and international sections), and Friends General Conference (for six years). He traveled widely among Friends (both at home and abroad) for more than 50 years. The scholarship which carries his name is intended to increase interest in and knowledge of Biblical and Quaker thought among Friends.
