Taking root in the uncertain years between World War I and World War II, the Pennsylvania Committee for Total Disarmament was a Philadelphia- based peace organization that attempted to sway public opinion away from support of war. It attempted to persuade Congress to pass the Frazier amendment, which would have outlawed war. This group conducted public meetings and had an active Youth Section.
Dr. William I. Hull was the chairman for the life of the organization. He was the group's representative during the 1932 Disarmament Conference in Geneva, and sent numerous reports of his activities there.
An excellent case study of a peace organization's activities at the local level, this collection contains minutes, reports of committees, resolutions, correspondence, financial records, membership lists, signed petitions, scrapbooks, and records of meetings.
