Alfred Henry Love

Love, Alfred Henry, 1830–1913, American pacifist, b. Philadelphia. Love, a Quaker, remained firm in his principles at the outbreak of the Civil War, refusing even to hire a substitute when he was drafted; he set forth his position in An Appeal in Vindication of Peace Principles (1862). With others he formed the Universal Peace Union and until his death remained the leader of this body and editor of its publications and periodical. He urged outlawing war, the negotiation of treaties of arbitration, the establishment of an international court, and arbitration in industrial disputes.
