Custodial history:
The Joint Disarmament Council was founded at a public meeting on 18 May 1931, called by the Fellowship of Reconciliation at the request of the National Council for the Prevention of War, to co-ordinate the work of some thirty local organisations in preparation for a Disarmament Conference in 1932. Its main constituents were the League of Nations Union, the Women's International League, the Society of Friends Peace Committee, the Fellowship of Reconciliation and the No More War Movement. The Manchester and Salford District Joint Disarmament Council co-ordinated organisations which believed disarmament possible under the capitalist system. In 1933 the Manchester and District Anti-War Council was formed as a result of a Conference called by the local No More War Movement and the Manchester Anti-War Committee. This Council attracted bodies who were against the capitalist system.
Mr. J. B. Rhodes of Poynton gave the papers to the Library in October 1978.
