Overview and metadata sections

Princeton Crusader Fellowship.

The Princeton Crusader Fellowship is a Christian reform organization founded by a group of Princeton students on Commencement Day in 1912. The Fellowship, though composed largely of alumni, also has undergraduate and graduate student chapters. Upon induction members take a pledge to carry out in their everyday lives the group's reformist mission, and then assemble whenever possible at reunions to renew that pledge. Notable early leaders of the group include prominent Episcopal minister John Nevin Sayre '1907, and Reverend Samuel M. Shoemaker '1916, who was influential in the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Consists of member lists, constitutions, speeches, articles, newsletters, and correspondence of the Princeton Crusader Fellowship. Also included is a bound autograph book, signed by most members of the organization from its founding until 1976 and featuring pictures of some of the more recent members.
