UNESCO and Cultural Diversity

Remarks by RICHARD ARNDT at the meeting on “Globalization and Diversity, UNESCO and Cultural-Policy Making: Imperatives for U.S. Arts and Culture Practitioners and Organizations” held January 10-11, 2005, at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.

"We must not forget that UNESCO was virtually an American idea, springing from the thought of men like Sumner Welles, Laurennce Duggan, J. William Fulbright, Ralph Turner, Archibald MacLeish and dozens of other internationalists like Jack Fobes, all of whom resolved in 1945 that there must never be another world war."
