Records, mainly correspondence, financial records, minutes, and subject files, of the North American affiliate of the World Peace Brigade, an international organization devoted to peace through nonviolent protest and liberation of colonial territories. Among the groups founding the Brigade in December 1961 were the Society of Friends, American Friends Service Committee, War Resisters' League, and the Gandhi Peace Federation. Much of the correspondence in the collection is of the Council's chairman, A. J. Muste, with Bayard Rustin, William Sutherland, and others. The Council was involved in such projects as the Delhi-Peking Friendship March (1963), the African Project for the liberation of Northern Rhodesia (1962-1963), and a 1962 protest of Soviet nuclear testing.
