Following up on Daniel's reply, I found the following book by Robert J. Leach
at this website: http://www.marinehomecenter.com/eganinstitute/mill_hill.html
By Robert Leach and Peter Gow
1997 $29.95 cloth
Based on original research in records long
thought lost, Quaker Nantucket explores the
spectacular growth of Quakerism on the island
and its equally astonishing decline amidst the
collapse of the whaling industry a century later.
(224 pp/15 ill)
I thouht there might be others on this list who would be interested.
