Overview and metadata sections

The Young Friends' Association (Purchase, N.Y.), a Quaker social and study group, was established in Purchase, New York, in 1892. The Association was modeled after a similar organization in Philadelphia; the representative from Purchase Monthly Meeting to a First Day School Conference held in Lincoln, Virginia, in the summer of 1892, had been introduced to the program and a similar program was proposed and adopted in Purchase. The Association met regularly to discuss topics of mutual interest.

The collection contains one bound volume of minutes, 1892-1894.
