Records of an international organization of volumtary prisoners' aid societies concerned with prison reform and with the rehabilitation and treatment of former prisoners. Although IPAA was formed in 1910, the records date primarily from the 1950s and 1960s. Those records which predate that period relate to activities in the United States when the group was known as the National Prisoners' Aid Association. Correspondence, which comprises over 4 reels, ranges from letters from inmates to exchanges with member agencies. Corporate records comprise another 4 reels and include articles of incorporation, minutes, conference papers, financial records, reports, and officers' files of both the IPAA and the NPAA. The remainder are subject files on miscellaneous IPAA projects, files on the Correctional Service Federation, and files relating to the preparation of the IPAA newsletter.
