This chapter introduces Horace Alexander, a Quaker who was determined to work in a practical way for a more peaceful and humane world, and begins by discussing his childhood and teenage years, which were mostly composed of birdwatching and studying. It then discusses his years in Cambridge, including his disregard of girls and his concerns for free speech and free movement. The final section shows how the First World War affected Alexander and looks at his efforts to secure an appeal for peace.
