Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Emily Greene Balch was an American academic, writer, and pacifist who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1946, notably for her work with the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Born in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston into an affluent family, she was amongst the first graduates of Bryn Mawr College in 1889. She continued to study sociology and economics in Europe and the United States, and, in 1896, she joined the faculty of Wellesley College, becoming a full professor of economics and sociology in 1913. During the World War I, she helped to found the WILPF League and campaigned against America's entry into the conflict.
