Overview and metadata sections

Described as "a facility to assist citizens desiring a place to think, learn, and work for peace" the Peace Center was formed under the sponsorship of Friends Peace Committee of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. In 1965, direct connection with the Friends Peace Committee was terminated, representing a more ecumenical outreach in coordinating peace groups in the Philadelphia area.

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