Overview and metadata sections

Edward W. Savery (1918-2005) was born August 29, 1918, the son of Edward Savery and Mary E. Williams. He died on December 18, 2005.

This collection is comprised of the single volume history of Middletown Friends Meeting. A note in the front of the volume describes how the history was "prepared on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the Middletown Friends Meetings." The history spans from 1686 to 1986, and begins by describing how early Friends in Chester County met in family homes, and the history of building the meeting house in 1699. The history describes the Middletown Meeting's reactions to various historical issues, including European American treatment of Native Americans and slavery and abolition. At the back of the volume is a Middletown Monthly Meeting Membership List from February, 1986.
