Kathleen Innes


The first of two educational books about the League of Nations written for children, this volume explains the establishment of the League of Nations and its formation. Innes was the secretary of the Peace Committee of the Society of Friends (the organization that also sponsored the Merttens Lectures) and she guaranteed that the Society would buy a certain number of copies of the book. It was also marketed to schools and was approved by the London County Council, which made it a great publishing success (Willis 221). The book did what perhaps the later World-Makers and World-Shakers were expected to do and has a comparable premise, although the latter books were less successful.
