1946 — Emily Balch, Peace Activist:
Balch helped found the International Women’s League for Peace and Freedom and was active in international relief efforts and on League of Nation’s Committees. She was fired from Wellesley College for opposing World War I, but opposed U. S. neutrality in World War II.
“As the world community develops in peace, it will open up great untapped reservoirs in human nature.”
