Scope and arrangement
Georgia Lloyd's papers span the early 1920s through the middle of the 1990s. They document her interest and involvement with the pacifist and world government movements in addition to numerous other causes such as the Equal Rights Amendment, consumer cooperatives, and racially-integrated housing.
The collection consists of correspondence both professional and personal; her professional publications and book drafts; a voluminous subject file containing information on organizations, topics and individuals in which Georgia took an interest; financial and real estate records; miscellaneous personal items; and a small number of photographs.
Georgia's professional connections, lifelong friends and family members are rather well represented within the collection, and make it a useful resource for documenting the development of many progressive and liberal movements of the twentieth century, such as women's rights, American Socialism, the pacifist and conscientious objector movements, world government, and labor rights. In addition, the papers offer a view into the lives and interactions of members of the activist Lloyd and Maverick families, Rosika Schwimmer, and a large number of Georgia's classmates from the Fellowship School and Marietta Johnson's School for Organic Education.
The majority of the collection is in English, with occasional French and German correspondence.
