Although the League of Nations, founded in 1920 in Geneva ceased to exist in 1946, its archives and historical collections survive as invaluable resources for historical research. This digital archive, created at Indiana University includes the League of Nations Overview of Photo Collections with photos of: Personalities (e.g. Woodrow Wilson, Haile Selassie), Assemblies, Councils, Delegations, Commissions, Conferences, the Secretariat, the Permanent Court of International Justice, the Bureau International du Travail, and miscellaneous photos. The originals of the photos are held with the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) Library, League of Nations Archives Sub-Unit and are its property. Also included are several illustrated books about the League. The collections are divided according to subjects, which include people, assemblies, councils, delegations, commissions, conferences, the Secretariat, the International Labor Bureau, and more. Each is both browseable and searchable, and provides basic data on the subject, place, etc. Users can also view large, high-quality versions of each image.
