Overview and metadata sections

Almost nothing is known about Victoria Rhodin except that she protested the show of Allied military strength in Europe in 1979, wrote about ecumenical communities and peacemaking, and gathered material about peace efforts in France and Germany.

This small collection consists almost entirely of reference material, with a few letters and a manuscript by Rhodin as well.

*The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is the official repository for these papers/records.
