- Ernest Votaw (1894-1988) was the Quaker administrator of a child feeding program in Germany in 1919-1922. The collection contains reports and related materials (some in German) of the Friends Feeding Mission, 1910-1923, other activities of the American Friends Service Committee, and reference material collected by Ernest Votaw in post-war Germany concerning jail conditions and other social problems. The collection also includes a small amount of correspondence and four articles written by Ernest Votaw's father, Albert H. Votaw, presumably for publication in a Quaker periodical. Included is his account of Yearly Meetings in Richmond, Indiana, reminiscences of Indiana Friends, and a discussion on the subject of singing in meeting.
