Biographical / Historical

Organized following a Pacifist Conference in New York City in February, 1938; made up of a group of peace organizations that changed somewhat from year to year. Sub-committees were set up to plan activities such as poster walks, working for liberal candidates during election year, and helping conscientious objectors by giving legal aid and counsel (this sub-committee established the Metropolitan Board for Conscientious Objectors in 1940). The United Pacifist Committee's most important activity was its annual United Pacifist Conference, held from 1938 to 1944.
