UN Day 2015, the UN at 70
Stanford University Libraries celebrates the United Nations Seventieth Anniversary
This guide brings together collections and materials held by the Stanford University Libraries, as well as information from the United Nations itself, on the UN Charter and the United Nations Conference on International Organziation (UNCIO) held in 1945, San Francisco.
Delegates of fifty nations met at San Francisco between April 25 and June 26, 1945. Working on the Dumbarton Oaks proposals, the Yalta Agreement, and amendments proposed by various Governments, the Conference agreed upon the Charter of the United Nations and the Statute of the New International Court of Justice.
The Charter was passed unanimously and signed by all the representatives. It came into force on October 24, 1945, when China, France, the USSR, the United Kingdom, and the United States and a majority of the other signatories had filed their instruments of ratification.
