After the death of John Wilhelm Rowntree, one of the leaders of the Quaker Renaissance, the Yorkshire 1905 Committee attempted to take forward his ideas, seeking to assist Quakers to take a more active involvement in social and political life. The Committee realised it was necessary to improve the vocal ministry of Quakers and extend the influence of Friends in their local communities. As part of this vision they supported various initiatives in adult education, including summer schools and educational settlements, were active in producing pamphlet literature, and promoted Quaker Tramps, missionary rambles inspired by the early itinerant ministry of the Quakers. In this paper Freeman assesses the success of the Committee's attempt to bring about a transformative impact on the quality of the Friend's religious life.
