Records of the Washington, D.C., chapter of a women's peace organization founded in 1961, and of its founder, Dagmar Wilson. Chapter records include correspondence, committee and activity files, clippings, and printed and near-print material relating to WSP opposition to the arms race, nuclear weapons proliferation, and later, to the Vietnam War. Twice during the early 1960's WSP was investigated by the House Committee on Un-American Activities; a major portion of the records relate to these confrontations. Wilson's papers include correspondence, speech notes and biographical data. A few records of other chapters of WSP are also present.
