The Summer of '43, When Quakers Landed on Vinalhaven: While World War II Raged, Urban Teens Visited Vinalhaven to Work
In the summer of 1943, twenty urban Quaker High School students were sent to Vinalhaven, under the coordination of the American Friends Service Committee, which had fallen on hard times due to the war. The students were to work on projects that would help the community. Projects the students worked on and how they interacted within the community are described by two of the participants, who are now in their eighties. [images, illustrations]
