Beautiful new audio of Peace Pilgrim

 Peace Pilgrim in Buffalo New York 1972

Peace Pilgrim in Buffalo New York 1972

Here at Friends of Peace Pilgrim we recently received a link to an interview with Peace Pilgrim made in Seattle at radio station KRAB. It was sent to us by Charles Reinsch, the KRAB archivist, who said, “Peace Pilgrim visited KRAB on July 20, 1973. She was interviewed for about 60 minutes, and the interview was aired the next day, again on Aug 30, 1973, July 8, 1975, and on Aug 4, 1978”.

The interview was particularly interesting to me because I first met Peace Pilgrim in Seattle in 1973, during her visit to that city when she did this interview. At the time I was an attender of the University Friends Meeting (Quaker) and on one Sunday it was announced that there would be a speaker after the meeting. I remember after hearing a description of this "wandering pilgrim" who went around wearing a tunic and talking about peace, wondering just what kind of person she was. Immediately upon hearing her, however, it was clear to me that she was a very genuine person. I can honestly say that this meeting with Peace Pilgrim in Seattle in 1974 profoundly changed my life. But that is another story.

Anyway here is a link to Peace Pilgrim's interview at KRAB - enjoy!
