The collection includes publications of the Church Peace Union from 1914-. There are also a few organizational and administrative documents such as minutes of meetings, correspondence, financial records, drafts of writings. Dr. William I. Hull of Swarthmore College was one of the trustees of the Church Peace Union and there is a folder of his correspondence included in the collection.

These records are arranged chronologically, with administrative records and organizational publications kept together by year. Some special publications series are housed in a separate folder and in rough chronological order.
