Description

Hamilton Fish Armstrong served as chair of the Peace Aims of the European Nations Group, which was the last group created by the War and Peace Studies Committee. The Group discussed European politics and provided information to the State Department during World War II. The aim of the study group was to investigate the claims of different European states, the validity of those claims, and the possible effects of those claims on current United States foreign policy and on the eventual postwar peace agreement. The meetings usually focused on one country and featured guest speakers from, or experts on, the country being discussed. The sub-series is divided into two categories (Correspondence and Memoranda; Meetings) and is ordered chronologically, dating from 1941 to 1944.

The Correspondence and Memoranda consist primarily of correspondence between Armstrong and guest speakers, group members, and Philip Mosely, the group rapporteur. It includes information about the group's objectives, meeting schedules, list of members and candidates, and memoranda authored by group members. It is comprised of correspondence that does not relate to any specific meeting.

The Meetings material is organized in chronological order. The folders contain agendas, attendance lists, summaries of meetings, and correspondence which is particular to that meeting.
