Centering on Plimpton's organizational commitments both in the United States and abroad, the documents in this series were drawn together from materials originally arranged alphabetically in the uncatalogued "Subject File." Because subheadings and folder names were arranged alphabetically in both the previous and current arrangement, the folders retain similar names and accordingly retain their original order. Documents include correspondence and records related to such organizations as the American Academy of Political Science, to Plimpton's work in Japan and the Near East, to his peace work, and to his trusteeships at Phillips Exeter Academy and Union Theological Seminary.
