Overview and metadata sections
Robert W. Gilmore was a Quaker pacifist who was involved in a number of peace groups, either as a staffperson or as a Board member. His papers reflect these involvements through correspondence and other materials.
This collection is made up almost entirely of correspondence and other material that documents Gilmore's involvements with various peace organizations in the 1960s-1970s. The papers were sorted in October 2006 and much general or non-RWG material was put in other collections where there will be better access to it (such as Negotiation Now!, New York Friends Group, Center for War/Peace Studies, World Without War Council, and Turn Toward Peace). The Gilmore papers still need to be processed completely and the material refoldered and labeled.
Some material was found from this collection in 2007 that had not been included in the above sorting. It appears below as part II and part III; it has been sorted into the same categories as that in part I.
The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is the official repository for these papers.
