Overview and metadata sections

C. Lloyd Bailey was a Quaker and has been interested in compiling a history of Seoul Monthly Meeting as well as maintaining conversation with its members. He made a trip to North and South Korea in 1992. Seoul Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends was started as a Quaker study group, held in the homes of Arthur "Red" and Shirley Mitchell, Reginald and Esther Price, or at the SooDo Medical College Hospital. It included both silent worship and discussion. Involvement in workcamps was emphasized as well as interaction with Japanese Quakers. The attenders decided to become a Quaker meeting in 1960 under the Pacific Yearly Meeting (U.S.). The meeting held its first business meeting in 1961.
