Description: Agnes Ryan (1878-1954), Iowa-born suffragist and pacifist, settled on a Durham, New Hampshire, farm in 1919 and became a leader in the state's peace movement. In the 1920's, Ryan and her husband promoted the peace movement by holding meetings with students in their home. In the 1930's Ryan became a full-time activist through involvement in a disarmament tour. In 1939 she sponsored the Student Peace Service in New Hampshire, then founded a School for Non-Violence. After World War II, the Cold War caused her to intensify her quest for permanent world peace. This remained her major concern for the rest of her life.
