Overview and metadata sections

Joel Bean was born in Alton, New Hampshire, in 1825, the son of John and Elizabeth Hill Bean, and educated at Friends Boarding School in Providence, Rhode Island. He migrated to Iowa in 1853, and taught school at West Branch, Iowa, from 1850 to 1861. In 1859, he married Hannah Elliott Shipley at Orange Street Meeting House, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hannah. the daughter of Thomas and Lydia Shipley of Philadelphia, was born in 1830. Thomas Shipley was a noted Quaker abolitionist. Hannah was educated at the Westtown School and taught at Friends Select School and at Mary Anna Longstreth's School for the Higher Education of Girls. The Beans visited the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) from 1861-1862 as Quaker ministers, and Joel was appointed clerk of the Iowa Yearly Meeting in 1867. The couple toured Europe from 1872-1873 as ministers.

The Beans opposed the extremes of revivalism, but declined to join the Conservatives in withdrawing from Iowa Yearly Meeting. The strain of the controversy affected Joel's health, and the Beans moved to San Jose, California, in 1882. After their move to San Jose, they joined a group of Friends who were initially affiliated with Iowa Yearly Meeting and helped to form the College Park Association of Friends. However, Joel and Hannah were deposed as ministers by Iowa Yearly Meeting in 1893 and disowned by them in 1898. This action caused a strong reaction among Quakers outside of Iowa Yearly Meeting, particularly among English Friends who knew and respected the couple after their religious visit to Europe. They were subsequently received by New England Yearly Meeting as members and ministers. Hannah Bean died in San Jose, California, in 1909, and Joel Bean died in Hawaii in 1914.

The Beans were among the founders of the College Park Association of Friends in San Jose, and their granddaughter, Anna Cox Brinton, was influential in its later development into Pacific Yearly Meeting.

The Bean Papers consist primarily of the writings and correspondence of Joel Bean, although some material by Hannah Bean is also present. Joel Bean's writings include accounts of the Iowa separations, sermons, religious writings, school lessons, poetry, historical writings, memorials, and personal reminiscences. Over 1800 letters and 69 volumes of diaries complete the collection.

This collection is divided into eleven series:

  1. Biographical material
  2. Diaries, 1850-1913

  4. Outgoing correspondence, 1854-1913
