Peace Resource Center
The Center works to keep alive Barbara Reynolds’ legacy by fulfilling our mission "to foster and provide peace education in schools, communities and the world by building on our unique Hiroshima /Nagasaki Memorial Collection and other peace resources."
Barbara Reynolds was called “the flower of Hiroshima” as she sought to educate the world about the effects of the atomic bomb. She was an activist, author, and peace educator. In August, 1975 she opened the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College to house the largest collection (outside of Japan) of materials related to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to teach peace skills to new generations.

The college rock is a land mark that interests new students and visitng folks. It is a glacial boulder, of metamorphosed granite, and is full of beautiful garnets. It was brought from Canada by the glacier and deposited on the grounds of the Clinton County Infirmary, where its mate, a much larger granite boulder, may be seen. It was placed on its present location by the class of 1906, under the supervision of Leo McCoy and his classmates. By purchasing one of this beautiful necklaces, you will have a piece of Wilmington College's history. It was a piece of the college community and a piece of the student's pride. It will then be a piece of you.
