New Website on Archival Resources on Conscientious Objection
ANNOUNCING A NEW WEB SITE
"Conscientious Objection in America: Primary Sources for Research"
In order to meet the growing demand from scholars and other researchers for information about conscientious objection to war, Swarthmore College Peace Collection archivist, Anne Yoder, has created a web site filled with information that will provide basic facts on the subject as well as point to opportunities for in-depth research. Enhanced by photographs and other images, the site includes a brief historical outline of conscientious objection in America from the Revolutionary War to the present, stories and accounts of conscientious objectors, a listing of over 175 archival sources from over 30 U.S. institutions, and links to non-archival sources. The primary sources range from personal papers of men (and women) who declared themselves to be objectors to war, to records of organizations that worked on their behalf. New sources are being added as they become known. The site may be accessed at the site below.
Never before has such a comprehensive listing of archival sources on conscientious objection been made available to the public. Please help us to advertise this web site to your constituency and contact us if you know of sources that should be added to the site.
