Swarthmore College Peace Collection
Two of the oldest and most frequently used photograph collections at the SCPC come from the Jane Addams Collection (DG 001) and from the Universal Peace Union Records (DG 038). In the former, only those images that showed Jane Addams, members of her family, or Hull-House were scanned for this project. Additional images reside in the SCPC, including those of Addams' classmates at Rockford Seminary [now College] and Addams' later colleagues in the international peace movement. All images from the UPU Records owned by the SCPC have been scanned and are included in this database. In 2012, the photographs and lantern slides from the Devere Allen Papers (DG 053) were added, and more from other collections will appear here in the future.
