Materials in this collection document some of the efforts to restore peace and economic development to Northern Ireland made by non-profit organizations, business concerns, politicians, and concerned citizens in both Ireland and the United States. The collection was assembled by Thomas J. Tracy, and reflects his participation, through funding and contacts, in bringing Irish issues to a level of greater understanding.
There is material on two conferences that Tracy sponsored. Materials include correspondence; newsletters and brochures from non-profit organizations concerned with peace; publications promoting law and order, as well as business opportunities; articles and clippings on the political situation; as well as some travel information about the geography and history of Ireland in general.
Although the materials begin in the 1970s, the bulk of the correspondence, clippings, and publications are between 1992-1998.
