Adlai Stevenson and Our Times

  • Brian Urquhart


I first met Adlai Stevenson during the meetings of the United Nations Preparatory Commission in London in 1945. The purpose of this commission was to design the actual structure of the new world organization on the basis of the Charter that had been signed in San Francisco four months earlier. Stevenson was the deputy to Edward R. Stettinius, the former Secretary of State who became the first United States Ambassador to the UN, but there was little doubt about who actually did the work.
