Overview and metadata sections
Organized following a Pacifist Conference in New York City in February, 1938; made up of a group of peace organizations that changed somewhat from year to year. Sub-committees were set up to plan activities such as poster walks, working for liberal candidates during election year, and helping conscientious objectors by giving legal aid and counsel (this sub-committee established the Metropolitan Board for Conscientious Objectors in 1940). The United Pacifist Committee's most important activity was its annual United Pacifist Conference, held from 1938 to 1944.
The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is not the official repository for the records of this organization.
