About the Author

Kenneth Boulding was born in 1910 in Liverpool, England. Raised a Methodist, he was attracted to the Society of Friends first by the peace testimony, then by the Meeting for Worship, and joined Friends when he was an undergraduate at Oxford. Starting as a chemist, he became an economist, came to the University of Chicago as a graduate student in 1932, and emigrated to the United States in 1937. Kenneth Boulding taught in many universities, published some thirty-five books, served as president of the American Economic Association, the International Studies Association, the Society for General Systems Research, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is known as a Quaker poet through the Nayler Sonnets (There Is a Spirit) and Sonnets From the Interior Life. Kenneth Boulding was writing sonnets right to his last days; the later ones in Sonnets From Later Life � 1981-1993, published by Pendle Hill in 1994.
Kenneth Boulding died in 1993. He had been married to Elise Biorn-Hansen since 1941; they had five children and sixteen grandchildren. From the beginning, Kenneth and Elise were activists in the peace research movement and in many Friends� meetings and organizations.
