Overview and metadata sections

The National World Court Committee's work had its origin in a resolution passed by the Council of Christian Associations at Lake Forest, Illinois, September 1925. Its purpose was to secure United States membership in the World Court under the terms of the Root Protocol. The Committee acted as a clearinghouse for 55 civic, church, and peace organizations in the United States. State-by-state endorsements by prominenet law and education officials were publicized. The formal title of the World Court was The Permanent Court of International Justice; it was located at The Hague, Netherlands.

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