The papers consist of correspondence, minutes, reports, organizational and financial records, speeches, topical files, notes, and printed literature documenting Chase Kimball's participation in some thirty-five national and local social, political, and religious organizations, primarily concerned with international peace and justice, and also with civic improvement in Connecticut and especially Waterbury. Since Kimball was active in or received literature from nearly all peace organizations between 1930 and 1939, the Kimball papers are a full record of the literature and ephemera produced and are a source of information on fund-raising and other organizing activities and on the tensions created in the peace movement by differences in intellectual approaches and organizing strategies. Extensive files exist for the American Friends Service Committee, the Connecticut Council on International Relations, the Connecticut Peace Conference, the Emergency Peace Campaign, the International Peace Campaign, the League of Nations Associations, the National Council for Prevention of War, the Waterbury Council for Peace Action, and the Young Men's Christian Association.
