- Dr. O. Edward Janney was a prominent Quaker doctor from Baltimore who was active in many of the social reform movements of his time. He worked with the Society for the Suppression of Vice in Baltimore and labored in the causes of temperance, woman suffrage, inter-racial relations, peace, and other reforms. In 1907, Dr. Janney gave up the practice of medicine to devote his energies full time to reform activities. The collection contains correspondence (1874-1945), diary (1914), memoirs, speeches, writings, memorabilia and photos of Dr. O.E. Janney and his wife, Anne B. (Webb) Janney, of Baltimore, Maryland. The papers include his work with various organizations including the Advancement Committee of Friends General Conference, Baltimore Yearly Meeting, American Friends Service Committee, and Woolman School. Anna B. Janney's correspondence primarily concerns women's suffrage issues and correspondents include Anna Howard Shaw.
