- The collection contains the correspondence of Rebecca Mary Hannum (1889-1984) mostly related to her work with the American Friends Service Committee child feeling program in post WWI Germany, 1921-1924 and Peasant Industries, Poland. After the child feeling project was transferred to local groups in Germany, Mary Hannum became involved with the Peasant Industries program which supported women's handwork for sale in the United States and elsewhere. Her personal and business letters contain detailed descriptions of relief work in Germany, travel, and administration of the Peasant Industries. Also included are three letters presumably from her brothers sent from Camp Greenleaf Detention Camp, Tennessee, and typed carbons of reports of relief workers in Poland and Russia including a diary of Quaker relief worker Beulah Hurley.
