Description

The Security and Armaments Group was one of five study groups composed of experts and council members, organized with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation during World War II. The material consists of chronologically arranged agendas and memoranda produced by members of the committee and the committee research secretary for discussion within the groups and eventual transmission to the State Department. One hundred forty-three memoranda were created providing studies on armaments throughout the world. There is almost a complete run of the memoranda. Appendix B of the War and Peace Studies Report (box 75, folder 7) contains a complete list of the memoranda.
