  • Summary

    Nathan B. Pierson, a Friends pastor in several states from the 1940s through the 1970s, donated this collection of marriage licenses, funeral services and obituaries, and Quaker pamphlets. The certificates and funerals are documents from the various locations where he and his wife Hazel ministered.

  • Scope and Contents

    This collection of four folders focuses on three themes: marriage licenses “to be retained by the person performing the ceremony”; funeral services and obituaries, and Quaker pamphlets. Nathan Benbow Pierson’s pastoral ministry was in Kansas, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. The certificates and funerals are documents from the various locations where he and his wife Hazel ministered. The retention of the Quaker documents illustrate his valuation of their teachings.

  • Biographical note

    Nathan Benbow Pierson pastored Friends churches in Kansas, Texas, Washington state, Idaho, and Oregon. He retired in 1975 to Friendsview Manor in Newberg, Oregon.
