The United Nations was officially established on this day in 1945 upon the ratification of the UN Charter. Albert Gore, Sr. was a member of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations as a senator. Below is a portion of Gore’s WSM radio transcript from his weekly broadcast on March 10, 1946. Also with his hand-written notes, he discusses the UN and its potentials for world order less than a year after its establishment.
