National Peace Academy Campaign

The National Peace Foundation's "Pioneering Peacebuilder Awards were presented to some of those who launched the National Peace Academy Campaign in 1976, were responsible for the creation of the Congressional Commission on a Peace Academy in 1982, and created the National Peace Foundation in 1982. Their work, beginning as a grassroots movement with 50,000 subscribers, led to the establishment by Congress of the United States Institute of Peace in 1984. these awards -- to James Laue (1933-1993) and Mariann Laue; Milton C. (Mike) Mapes (1923-1984) and Jane Mapes; and Thomas C. Westropp -- were presented by The Honorable Richard Solomon, President of the U.S. Institute of Peace . An award in honor of Malcom Campbell, the late President of the Laub Foundation, which has supported the National Peace Foundation's work in schools for the past twelve years, was presented to Mr. Campbell's daughter, Katherine Wolk, current President of the Laub Foundation."
