June 16th in 1945 saw a wind-down of the San Francisco Conference and establishment of the first United Nations Charter. Although the war was still going on in the Pacific, the daunting task of putting Europe back together was getting started.
Ten days away from the official close of the Conference, this would be the last broadcast recapping the days activities, which were going on since April.
Lots of cautious optimism and a sense that maybe, just maybe it would be done right this time.
Well . . . .
Here is San Francisco Conference Report featuring analysis by Dean Virginia Gildersleeve and Assistant Secretary of State Archibald MacLeish, as it was heard over NBC on June 16, 1945.
