Overview

The National Circulating Library of Students' Peace Posters (NCLSPP) had the single goal of promoting peace through the graphic arts created by young people.

Historical

The National Circulating Library of Students' Peace Posters (NCLSPP), was founded by Nancy J. Babb, a peace activist, relief worker, and a member of the Society of Friends. The NCLSPP had the single goal of promoting peace through the graphic arts created by young people. Located in Philadelphia, the organization sponsored peace poster contests in schools across the country and traveling exhibits of this art work. Eventually the prize-winning posters were reproduced, full color, as stamp-sized stickers sold by the sheet.

Arrangement

Box 1 contains general administrative and financial records, plus correspondence. There are also files on public relations and attempts to advertise the poster contests. Box 2 contains documents from each annual poster contest between 1935 and 1940.
