The World Peace Foundation "was created in 1910 by the imagination and fortune of Edwin Ginn to encourage international peace and cooperation. The Foundation seeks to advance the cause of peace through study, analysis and the advocacy of wise action. As an operating, not a grant-giving, foundation, it provides financial support only for projects which it has initiated itself." [1]

Information from the World Peace Foundation Archives is now available online. The collection comprises materials generated or accumulated by the World Peace Foundation between 1899 and 1993.
