“It Began in Boston” Celebrating a Century of Peace Work in Massachusetts When Edwin Ginn died on January 21, 1914, his bequest of a million dollars to the World Peace Foundation created an enduring contribution to peace. Ginn, like ourselves today, had the honor of working and living in a community rich with individuals and organizations dedicated to world peace. This event celebrates that community and its shared goal, and launches the WPF’s program of centennial events looking forward to the next hundred years of working for world peace. We cordially invite you to an evening program and reception with honored guest speakers: Peter Bell, Senior Research Fellow at Harvard University's Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations, Trustee of the World Peace Foundation Laura Roskos, President, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, U.S. Section J. Bryan Hehir, Montgomery Professor of the Practice of Religion and Public Life, Harvard Kennedy School of Government And our annual Toast for Peace Monday, January 13, 2014 The Edwin Ginn Library The Fletcher School at Tufts University 160 Packard Avenue, Medford, MA 02155 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm By invitation only.
