Historical Background
This collection consists of a small amount of the correspondence and reports generated during a letter exchange project, directed by Mary N. Chase from 1915 through the 1930s. As Secretary for the Society for the Promotion of International Amity at Proctor Academy in Andover, New Hampshire, Chase encouraged the exchange of letters between American students and their counterparts in other lands. Chase led the effort through her direction of the Society, and later of the academy's International Amity Club and the Eastern Branch of the World League headquartered at the academy. Chase wrote to many heads of schools, colleges and international clubs, as well as government officials to encourage international goodwill and arrange for the transmittal and translation of the letters between the school children. Her correspondents include Fannie Fern Andrews, Gilbert Bowles, Emma Cadbury, Frederick Libby, Lucia Ames Mead, [Argentine Ambassador] Romulo S. Naon, Clarence Pickett and James Tryon, as well as students telling of their lives.

Chase also served as Secretary of the New Hampshire Peace Society, and President of the New Hampshire Woman's Suffrage Association.
