Disarmament Congresses
Conference for the Reduction and Limitation of Armaments, Geneva, February 1932
(also called World Disarmament Conference)

Note: This collection of material was originally arranged and catalogued as a CDGA. Upon closer analysis, it was later discovered that almost none of it was created at the conference; instead, much is about how various organizations were working to promote the conference in their literature etc. and their follow-up actions. Also, there is much material that should more correctly be filed in the various organizations' records since it is related to their views on disarmament rather than on the conference. However, because of the time factor involved in re-filing everything, the decision was made to leave the collection intact for now (though significant re-sorting within the collection was done in March 1999).
