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.
