Arrangement

This collection was organizationed by WWWC-Midwest leader Robert Woito and remains in the order in which he donated the material. Many folders were included in the original boxes, but arrived here empty. These folders were removed, but the titles retained in the finding aid, and designated as [empty]. The donor created a detailed and annotated finding aid, which is available on line. With the removal of books, periodicals, and photographs from the collection (now stored in appropriate collections), the box numbering of the collection has changed from the Woito finding aid.

Custodial History

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is the official repository for these papers/records.
