Committee for the Expenditure of the H. H. Mosher Fund

About the Mosher Fund Committee

Guided by the directive of Henry Mosher for “circulating books and tracts inculcating and developing the principles of the Christian religion as preached and promulgated by the early Friends,” the Committee uses the income of the H. H. Mosher Fund to distribute books and pamphlets written by and about Friends and concerning Friends’ principles. Lately, the selections have been broadened to include books on religion and related subjects and on other topics pertinent to Friends. Literature is distributed mostly to Friends’ meetings in New York Yearly Meeting and to affiliated Friends’ institutions, but also to individuals who make their books available to others in the course of their work on behalf of Friends. Books are also given to visiting Friends at Summer Sessions.

The Committee operates a book table at Yearly Meeting sessions with a view to promoting sales of literature of the same general type as that of the Mosher Fund distribution. Committees and individuals are asked to recommend suitable publications for the book table.
