About the Project

This website is a virtual representation of a network of scholars that emerged during the last decade.

As a result of their journal articles and book chapters they had written, edited or reviewed, Patricia Clavin and Susan Pedersen were fortunate to find themselves in correspondence with a growing number of scholars around the world who were working on the League of Nations, or who were interested in using its archives. They soon realized it made sense for scholars working in cognate fields to correspond with one another directly, and to have a facility to exchange information about resources, lectures and publications.

It is especially fitting that the Carnegie Corporation, New York generously agreed to fund this initiative given the role of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in the history of the League of the Nations.
