Overview and metadata sections

Dr. Walter Koch was a German Quaker educator and author. He published a book entitled "Die Stellug Des Quakertums Zur Sozialen Frage" ("The Attitude of Quakerism to the Social Problem"), and was one of the small party of Germans allowed by the German government to attend the Young Friends' Conference at Jordans in August of 1920, in Great Britain.

This collection is comprised of the typed correspondence of Walter Koch, and is written in both German and English. Koch generally corresponds with Friends in the United States about their financial "gift," toward his efforts to teach Quaker texts in German schools, and his promotion of the pacifist movement in Germany.
