As the European relief effort of the American Friends Service Committee concluded in 1924, questions were raised whether the Service Committee should continue to exist at all. In September of that year, a group of concerned Friends met to consider the future direction of the AFSC. It was decided that the Service Committee still had an important mission to carry out and, therefore, should continue to function.
