The Homer Lane Society was founded by Roy Frye, Cynthia Cross, Roy Schama and John Cross all of whom were members of a pacifist community. The Society’s principle aim was to support the Homer Lane Trust in establishing a community for the treatment of emotionally and socially disturbed children. It’s secondary aim was to advocate for wider recognition of the work of Homer Lane and to provide opportunities for further research through funding of lectures and meetings. Roy Schama was the first treasurer. In practice, the Homer Lane Society appears to have been short-lived with the Homer Lane Trust becoming the principle organisation for the advancement of Homer Lane’s work.
