Nobel Peace Prize, 1901-1956
||Buchmann was nominated for his peace efforts, especially his work in the Moral Rearmament movement. He founded the movement in 1920s as the Oxford Group. It based its teaching on the Four Absolutes" (honesty, purity, unselfishness, love). Later, as the MRA (1938), it became more involved in political and social issues, particularly during the Cold War period when its anticommunist orientation found a receptive climate.
