Frances Albrier's Moral Re-Armament Collection
About the Project
These photographs and letters relating to the Moral Re-Armament Assembly of Nations on Mackinac Island, Michigan, were compiled by Frances Albrier during the 1950s. Moral Re-Armament (MRA) was a moral and spiritual movement that began in 1938 and was led by Dr. Frank N. D. Buchman. In the 1950s, the MRA began holding conferences on Mackinac Island where many political and spiritual leaders, especially those in many of the African and Asian countries moving toward independence from colonial rule, came together on multi-faith initiatives and contributed to bringing unity to groups in conflict with each other.
