64 BULLETIN OF FRIENDS' HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION slavery agitation and the activities of the underground railway, and upon the educational efforts of Friends. There are sketches of Reuben Dorland (1816-1852), who came to Salem to start Dorland Seminary in 1845, and of D. Sands Wright (1848-1926), who came to Whittier College in Salem in 1872. The editor adds in a note the names of several other Quaker schools in Iowa. Salem is said to be the first Quaker settlement west of the Mississippi. "The very name Salem indicates that these settlers were Quakers. A list of Salems in various States establishes the trail of the Quakers from New Jersey, through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and even as far west as Oregon."
