Overview and metadata sections

The Emergency Peace Committee was sponsored by several peace organizations, including the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, the American Friends Service Committee, and the Fellowship of Reconciliation, for the purpose of coordinating and furthering peace ideas. Committee meetings were held in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. The Emergency Peace Committee may have been a predecessor of the Emergency Peace Campaign. The aims of the two organizations were similar, and many individuals, including John Nevin Sayre, Dorothy Detzer, Ray Newton, and Norman Thomas were active in both groups.

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is not the official repository for the records of this organization.
