Rehearsal at Atlantic City

  • Armand Van Dormael


The international monetary conference Harry White had been planning for two and a half years was at last within his reach. Under the leadership of the US Treasury, the delegates of forty-four Allied and Associated Nations would lay the foundation for worldwide economic co-operation. It would be the fust major international conference to deal with postwar reconstruction, and would set the pattern for other conferences to follow. If successful, it would stand as a landmark in history, and bear witness to the high economic statesmanship of the participants. Many hurdles still stood in the way of final success; but, as usual, White concentrated the full thrust of his energy on the immediate tasks, while never losing sight of the ultimate goal.
