Who am I?

I am Mary Crauderueff, a young adult Quaker from the Philadelphia area, and the Curator of Quaker Collections at Haverford College.  I’m interested in Quaker leadership, particularly in the area of board development and how to build and teach leadership skills.  I have an interest in what goes into being a leader, how Quakers come into those roles, and the intersections of careers and spirituality.


I have served on many Quaker boards, including seven years on the Pendle Hill board and seven (and counting!) on the Friends Historical Association board. I’m a product of many years of Quaker education – I am an alumna of Friends’ Central School (’03) outside of Philadelphia, PA, and Earlham College (’07) in Richmond, IN.  I earned my Masters in Library Science from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2009. I have lived and worked since then in Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massachusetts.


I’m thrilled to have support from my family, friends, colleagues, and the Pickett Foundation for this work.
