"World-Mindedness": The Lisle Fellowship and the Cold War
Brownlee, Kimberly
American Educational History Journal, v37 n1 p237-247 2010
This article will examine a little known but long-standing group, the Lisle Fellowship, that endeavored to open the world to college students and foster international understanding--or "world-mindedness," as the organization's founders called it--ultimately with the goal to contribute to the ideal of world peace. It will also, in particular, explore Lisle's efforts to do so in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics during the Cold War. Founded in 1936 by a pair of former Methodist missionaries, DeWitt and Edna Baldwin, the Lisle Fellowship was an experiential off-campus summer learning program for college students aimed at increasing understanding of different cultures. It is hoped that through this paper more people will become aware that this organization existed, and continues to exist, and that its work continues to strive towards the same ideal--world peace.
