From the Swarthmore College Peace Collection
Hannah Clothier Hull (1872-1958), an absolute pacifist and suffrage leader, devoted nearly fifty years to these causes. She corresponded with a host of important pacifists, feminists, and political figures, and her papers are a valuable resource to scholars of the peace and women's movements. From 1917 to 1920 she served in the Woman's Peace Party and the American Friends Service Committee in its postwar relief projects. Her affiliation with the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) began in 1922, when she attended the International Conference of Women at The Hague.
The Papers of Hannah Clothier Hull includes correspondence (1892-1956): speeches, articles, and notes (1925-1958); biographical materials; pamphlets on woman suffrage; clippings; and photographs. Materials related to the WILPF also include press releases and files documenting attacks on the league and its relations with the National Council of Women. Other files contain detailed information on the development of the Swarthmore College Peace Collection, the Nye munitions investigations, and efforts made to rescue German political emigrés.
