S. ALLEN BACON 

Image title

S. Allen Bacon, 93, who directed several social agencies in Philadelphia and was active in peace, social justice, and environmental concerns, died Aug. 15 at Crosslands in Kennett Square, of natural causes.  
A lifelong Quaker, Bacon was a conscientious objector during World War II, taught at a Friends school, worked for the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and directed several neighborhood social service agencies in Philadelphia. After retirement, he served on the boards of various agencies and, along with his wife of 68 years, Margaret Hope, helped to restore an historic Quaker burial ground and its neighborhood in North Philadelphia.

He was a graduate of Westtown School, Antioch College and Harvard Graduate School of Education. He wrote in his memoirs that he was motivated by his Quaker heritage and liberal education.

During the Second World War, he was in the government-sanctioned program for conscientious objectors, Civilian Public Service, employed as an attendant on the admission ward of a mental hospital. The doctors credited the conscientious objectors with eliminating the use of restraints and reducing the use of sedation on the wards.

He gained recognition in the social service field in his first settlement house job as community organizer at Friends Neighborhood Guild. He designed and directed a program to reduce juvenile delinquency in a gang infested area of North Philadelphia. Germantown Settlement, where he was director for nine years, collaborated with the Housing and Redevelopment Authorities to build new public housing on scattered sites, rather than clearing whole blocks of housing, and demonstrated a more humane system of relocating families from condemned houses.

Bacon became director of the Greater Philadelphia Federation of Settlements, which he had helped to re-organize and which operated, through its member agencies, a number of city-wide youth programs in vocational training and employment and a program for emotionally disturbed school children.

In his last position before retirement, he served as director of the Center for Human Services of the Episcopal Community Services, where he was responsible for the operation of about 15 social services ranging from home-based care, foster homes for teenagers, family counseling, volunteer services to the blind, to prison chaplaincies and a senior center.

In his retirement years, Bacon served on the boards and committees of some of the agencies for which he had previously worked. His major retirement activity, however, was first as president and then as fundraiser on the board of the Fair Hill Burial Ground Corporation. Fair Hill was a neglected and vandalized Quaker burial ground in an area then called the "Bad Lands." Buried there are Lucretia Mott, Robert Purvis, Anna Jeanes, and a number of other notable 19th-century abolitionists and reformers. The corporation purchased the burial ground from its delinquent owner and restored it to become a beautiful and educational historic site.

Allen Bacon's wife of 68 years, Margret Hope Bacon passed in 2011. He is survived by their three children, daughters Margaret S. Bacon and Elizabeth H. Caesar, and son Peter F. Bacon; four grandchildren, four step-grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and 12 step-great-grandchildren. He was also survived by his sister, Alice Long; and his companion, Manya Bean.

Memorial meeting will be held at the Crosslands Retirement Community in Kennett Square on Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. in the community's William Penn Lounge. Memorial contributions may be made to the Fair Hill Burial Ground Corporation, Antioch College, and the American Friends Service Committee.
