A sense of history

On being invited to celebrate the golden anniversary of the June 26  1945 signing of the UN charter

I was surprised to be invited, quite frankly…..It’s a very gratifying kind of recognition.  It’s a demonstration that the basic ideas were realistic and reasonable and…deserved public support 

At San Francisco, most of my working time was spent on the probable end of hositilities in Europe and the tidying-up process that went with that, more than on the UN as such.
