Internship Funds

Freeman Internship Endowment
The Harrop A. and Ruth S. Freeman Peace Internship Endowment was created in 1996 by a bequest from life-long peace activists Ruth and Harrop Freeman to provide stipends to interns in the War Resisters League’s national office. The Freemans were close personal associates of A.J. Muste, and Harrop — a radical lawyer and World War II conscientious objector — was one of the founding board members of the Muste Institute.
