William Dawes (abolitionist)
William Dawes was an abolitionist.
John Keep and William Dawes both undertook a fund raising mission in England in 1839 and 1840 to raise funds from sympathetic abolitionists. Oberlin College was one of the few mult-racial and co-educational colleges in America at that time.
Both John Keep and Dawes are credited with helping to start the collection of African Americana at Oberlin College which inspired other writers.
