Edwin Ginn, a Tufts alumnus, founded the World Peace Foundation in July 1910 with the purpose of "educating the people of all nations to a full knowledge of the waste and destructiveness of war, its evil effects on present social conditions and on the well-being of future generations…" After his death, the library of the World Peace Foundation was donated to The Fletcher School and became the basis for the Edwin Ginn Library. In 2011, the World Peace Foundation established a program at The Fletcher School, reflecting the common values and closely aligned objectives of the two institutions.
