Ray Foote Purdy

One of the young Americans who enlisted to work with Buchman.

Ray Purdy's story is the story of an American who, as a young man in the early 1920's, decided to devote his life to the concept, initiated by Dr. Frank Buchman, that the only way to resolve conflict between races, classes and nations, and build a new society, is by changing the human nature of individuals, one by one, starting with yourself. He found that this hate-disarming concept found response in people of all kinds in every country, and as the force of committed people grew, so did the global impact.
