Historical Background
The Greenville Peace Committee, located in Greenville, North Carolina, was founded in 1970. The founders included Rev. Charles Mulholland and Lou Paul. The group supported conscientious objectors and was against the Vietnam War. One of its major projects was in opposition to the B-1 Bomber. It brought speakers to Greenville churches and high schools, and worked on the East Carolina University campus. The Committee was affiliated with Mobilization for Survival and with SANE.

Collection Overview / Arrangement of Collection
Group members used notebooks to paste items documenting their activities and in which they wrote meeting minutes and reflections. The eight "scrapbooks" were taken apart by the SCPC archivist and separated into folders.
