Name: Goshen College. Pax Club

Historical Note:

The Goshen College Pax Club was founded in 1935 as the Goshen College Peace Society under the leadership of Edward Yoder, Guy Hershberger, John Umble, and Mahlon Lapp.  Although originally conceived as an organization to foster peace research and scholarship, it became focused on educating members of the Goshen College community about peace issues.  Over time, the Peace Society began to undertake peace activism both on and off campus.

The organization underwent three name changes.  Founded as the Peace Society, its name was changed in the late 1980s or early 1990s to Students for Shalom.  By 1994, the organization had renamed itself the Pax Club.
