Tom Hamm is among the world’s leading experts on Quakers in America. The author of several books, including an anthology of Quaker writings published by Penguin in 2011, Tom curates the College’s extensive Quaker collection. He teaches a variety of courses in American and British history.
“When you're an historian of Quakerism, Earlham is one of the three or four best places in the world to be,” says Tom, who also published a history of Earlham College (Indiana University Press, 1997).
