John & Martina Linnehan Archives at UF Library

John and Martina Linnehan and the Florida Peace Movement Collection

The archival material chronicling John and Martina’s involvement in the peace movement in Florida is housed at the PK Yonge Library of Florida History at the University of Florida. This information was relayed by James Cusick, UF archivist. Thank you to John Frank, who helped Martina work with Jim in assembling archival material.

The archives include numerous peace actions over 40 years, including related activities of Pax Christi, the Florida Coalition for Peace and Justice, Metanoia, Trident to Life, the annual gatherings on the Feast of the Holy Innocents at Kings Bay, and other organizations, campaigns and peace actions over the years.

Though surely incomplete, the archives nonetheless preserve an important historical record. The archives trace the Linnehans’ engagement from their days working with Cesar Chavez and the Farmworkers, to their first action at GE in Pinnellas Park (FL) while at Emmanuel House. The Linnehans spent their final years working on issues of environmental sustainability at the Peace Farm in Hampton.  We are all blessed to have walked part of our individual journeys alongside theirs! You may enjoy glancing through this.
