The Committee of Correspondence was an American women's internationalist organization that started in New York City in 1952 and disbanded in 1969. A group of women active in internationalist voluntary clubs and professional fields created the Committee as an offshoot of the National Council of Women. The Committee established itself as an independent non-profit organization shortly after it began. Oriented toward anti-communism, the organization convened its first meeting in 1952 to answer the question, "what steps should be taken to rally the women of the free world to counteract communist propaganda?" However, its anti-communism was not conservative McCarthyism. It was among mid-century initiatives designed to counteract the perceived threat of international communism by promoting democratic, putatively American values in foreign countries. Over time, the Committee evolved into a communications network that aimed to bring women's clubs around the world into closer contact. The Committee sought to make an impact on a diverse international network of clubwomen and professionals. Its efforts promoted cooperation across national borders and encouraged the development of women's non-governmental organizations affiliated with the United Nations.

An advisory organization rather than a membership group, the Committee consisted of a governing board of roughly a dozen women and a small paid staff, which, at times, included field workers who carried out Committee projects in foreign countries. Committee members included Smith College alumnae Susan McKeever, Jean Picker, and Eleanor Coit. The Committee sought "to provide an international communications link for the exchange of ideas, information and experience among women leaders throughout the world." It did so by cultivating contacts with "correspondents," representatives of women's groups from around the globe who subscribed to the organization's newsletter and participated in its conferences and educational initiatives. Ultimately, five thousand women in 140 countries participated in Committee ventures.

The Committee was named after the associations through which American Revolution leaders shared information and created alliances across geographical divides. The term evoked the values of democratic participation that members identified with the American Revolution as well as with their own anti-communist project. It also made reference to writing as a form of communication that connected far-flung people. At the same time that the organization identified itself with American patriotism, the Committee of Correspondence embodied many dimensions of twentieth-century international women's movements. As with the women's rights movement of the nineteenth century, correspondence and publications created a network among women for whom face-to-face contact was difficult. The group reflected a transition from an internationalism spearheaded by women's voluntary clubs, which came to the forefront at the turn-of-the-century, to that in which professionally administered non-governmental organizations came to predominate.

The membership of the Committee of Correspondence was largely white and elite. Well-situated women active in voluntary clubs-including Constance Forrest Anderson, a leader in the Young Women's Christian Association of the U.S.A., and Rose Parsons, an officer of the International Council of Women-were able to donate considerable time to the organization. Others-notably Eunice Carter and Dorothy Height, both officers of the National Council of Negro Women, as well as Eleanor Coit, like Height, a long-time employee of the Young Women's Christian Association-had professional leadership roles in other such groups. The Committee attracted correspondents who were elite volunteers or middle-class professionals. Such women were able to travel internationally and often receptive to the anti-communist tenor of the Committee.

Many of the publications disseminated by the Committee, particularly its monthly bulletin, were culled from American sources, and its conferences and exchanges were administered by Committee members, rather than the correspondents. This was indicative of mid-century American Cold War conceptions of international development, the presumption that Americans had particular qualities for leadership that they hoped to instill among what was understood to be underdeveloped peoples. At the same time, correspondents and participants influenced the Committee's agenda as they provided their own perspectives on community development and international relationships in responses to publications and conferences. Their visions of an international women's movement at times converged with those of the Committee; at others, they clashed. Though the organization did not have a particularly prominent profile, its work attracted the interest of women active in politics, club work, and the media throughout the world.

While the organization was a product of Cold War liberalism, one its more influential lines of work pointed to an emergent model of internationalism based more on empowering the grassroots and facilitating small-scale community development rather than middle-class uplift. In the early 1960s the Committee hired field workers for short term programs in leadership and skills training for community leaders in foreign countries. Sarale Owens, a former YWCA executive, earned considerable acclaim during her two years spent in East Africa as a Committee field worker. The Committee also sent personnel to Latin America.

Despite the Committee's successes at promoting contacts among women's organizations and hosting conferences both in and out of the United States, it could not recover from revelations published in Ramparts magazine in 1967 that it was among the international organizations covertly funded by the Central Intelligence Agency. Supportive of the Committee's commitment to liberal anti-communism, the CIA had funneled funding for the Committee through private foundation grants. The degree to which the CIA had an influence on the Committee's programming is disputed. Some members were in contact with CIA agents; others were not aware of such activities. Several Committee efforts were directed at countries of special interest to the CIA. These included a 1961 conference for Latin American journalists that coincided with the Bay of Pigs invasion. Another was a 1963 conference in Iran on the "Role of Women in the Community." The event garnered the participation of Ashraf Pahlavi, twin sister to Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah who had taken power after the 1953 CIA-sponsored coup.

After the expose in Ramparts, which was further publicized in a series of New York Times articles, President Lyndon Johnson curtailed CIA funding of private foundations. Unable to fill the breach through traditional fundraising methods, the Committee of Correspondence elected to dissolve in 1969.

Series Descriptions
(1952-69)
2.5 linear ft.

This series documents the management of the Committee of Correspondence. It contains legal and financial materials, including records pertaining to the charitable foundations through which CIA funding was channeled. There are also records of the committees that oversaw projects as well as files containing biographical information about members.

(1953-70)
1.5 linear ft

This series contains newsletters and books produced by the Committee of Correspondence. Publishing was a major avenue of activity for the organization. From 1953 to 1969 the Committee issued a monthly bulletin reporting on UN efforts, women's community development projects, and international cooperation. Many of these bulletins were translated into foreign languages; a full run of the bulletin and a sampling of foreign translations can be found in this series. Other publications, which built on similar themes pertinent to international women's organizations, include booklets and directories.

(1956-68)
1.5 linear ft.

This series documents another set of activities central to the group: the meetings it sponsored for the purposes of information-sharing and training in non-profit techniques. These events ranged from a large, royally sponsored conference in Tehran in 1963, which brought together representatives of women's organizations from throughout the Middle East, to the intimate luncheons held in New York for women delegates to the United Nations.

(1953-69)
1 linear ft.

This series contains subject files pertaining to Committee contacts with internationally oriented organizations. The records include printed materials, reports, and correspondence. Researchers may also wish to consult the relevant country files in SERIES V. CORRESPONDENTS AND FIELD WORK, which also document the Committee's organizational relationships.

(1953-69)
17.5 linear ft.

Materials in this series focus on two overlapping areas of Committee activity: the field work that sent paid staff to foreign countries and communications with the "correspondents" who received the organization's publications, participated in its conferences, or expressed interest in its work. These materials further document methods by which an American advisory group cultivated international relationships, revealing the Committee's strategies and impact on women's internationalism. Materials that originated with women and organizations from outside of the United States are included here. Organized by region, the series contains reports and correspondence from field workers who carried out training programs and organized conferences. The efforts of Sarale Owens, a field worker in East Africa, were most prominent in this regard. General files organized by country contain correspondence, reports and printed materials from the Committee's correspondents and contacts. A large set of note cards contain contact information and notes.

(1953-62)
.5 linear ft.

A general collection of photographs, some of which document Committee events, comprise this series. Photographs can also be found interspersed throughout SERIES III. CONFERENCES, SEMINARS, AND WORKSHOPS and V. CORRESPONDENTS AND FIELD WORK.

(1987-89)
1.5 linear ft.

This series is the result of Jacqueline Van Voris' research into the Committee of Correspondence. Van Voris, working on behalf of the Sophia Smith Collection, completed a set of taped interviews with Committee members in 1987-88. She used the histories as source material for her 1989 booklet, The Committee of Correspondence: Women with a World View. Interviewees discuss the vision of the organization, detail its projects, and assess its influence. Members also speak candidly about relationships with the Central Intelligence Agency and the effect of its involvement on organizational life. The histories are transcribed and well-indexed. The series also contains subject materials pertaining to Committee members and copies of Van Voris' publication.
