In 1963 the World Peace Foundation offered to deposit their early correspondence and other records at the SCPC, which -- along with a small amount of printed material that was already on deposit -- comprised eleven document boxes. Other accessions followed, which included much correspondence from George Blakeslee (President of the Board of Trustees), as well as from Directors Raymond Rich, S. Shepard Jones, Leland Goodrich, and Raymond Dennett. Material primarily about Edwin Ginn and/or Ginn & Co. was removed and made into a CDGA collection.
A removal form in the collection cites audiovisual material that could not be found on the AV database in 2007, which may mean that the items were lost at some point. These were: 1) a Speak-o-Phone phonograph record "Address of President A. Laurence Lowell, WEEI, 10:30 p.m., February 17, 1932"; 2) audiotape reel (reel-to-reel) "Informal Panel Discussion with Mrs. Shapiro, Barghooun, Tucker, Gyorgy," June 21 [no year, but found originally with 1945-1946 material]; 3) audiotape reel (reel-to-reel) "Informal Panel Discussion with Gibson, Nason," June 21 [no year, but found originally with 1945-1946 material]; 4) audiotape reel (reel-to-reel) "Roundtable With Mrs. Shapiro, Fischer, Trainor," June 21 [no year, but found originally with 1945-1946 material]
Note that annual reports from after 1915 were published as part of WPF's pamphlet series.
Records documenting the efforts of the WPF past 1960 were deposited by them at Tufts University [see finding aid]. Information about the current work of the WPF may be viewed at its website. A small number of pamphlets from 1961-on are available at the SCPC in the World Peace Foundation collected records (CDGA).
Correspondents include Norman Angell, Frank Aydelotte, Anna B. Eckstein, Alfred H. Fried, Hamilton Holt, David Starr Jordan, Theodore Marburg, Edwin D. Mead, George Nasmyth and Baroness Bertha von Suttner.
