Created by the League of Nations Archives, the Center for the Study of Global Chance, and the Indiana University Libraries, this online archive of League of Nations photographs is a fine resource for persons looking for visual documents related to the development and history of this former international organization dedicated to the promotion of international peace and security. The photo collections themselves are divided topically into groups that include personalities, assemblies, councils, delegations, and a "various" category that contains photographs of the League's headquarters in London. The site also features digital versions of two important promotional documents: The Illustrated Album of the League of Nations and The League of Nations: A Pictorial Survey. Both of these intriguing documents were designed to promote the mission and work of the League to the broader public, and as such, are fascinating repositories of visual material. Finally, the complete 224-page book titled "The Aims, Methods, and Activity of the League of Nations," published by the League Secretariat in 1935, is also available here for perusal.
