Ludwig Quidde, editor and historian, was elected president of the German Peace Society in 1914, a position he held for fifteen years. He was the winner of the 1927 Nobel Peace Prize, which he shared with Ferdinand Buisson of France.
Dr. Helene Stöcker (1869-1943) was one of the first woman students to enter a German University. In the 1920s she helped found Germany's first woman suffrage organization, and later the Bund für Mutterschutz (Protection of Motherhood). Dr. Stöcker immigrated to the United States in 1941 under the sponsorship of friends and colleagues in the peace movement.
