Biography and History

The Princeton Crusader Fellowship is a christian reform organization founded by a group of Princeton students on commencement day in 1912. The Fellowship, though composed largely of alumni, also has undergraduate and graduate student chapters. Upon induction members take a pledge to carry out in their everyday lives the group's reformist mission, and then assemble whenever possible at reunions to renew that pledge. Notable early leaders of the group include prominent Episcopal minister John Nevin Sayre '07, and Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker '16, who was influential in the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous.
