Swami Vivekananda (seated with turban) and actor Joseph Jefferson (standing with hat) pose with other guests at Green Acre, circa 1894. The programs at the Green Acre School included speakers from all over the world. The intent was to create dialog on religion, philosophy, the nature of the soul and world peace.
