History of the UN

History Of the UN The Idea is Born
The name "United Nations", coined by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was first used in the Declaration by United Nations of January 1, 1942, during the Second World War, when representatives of 26 nations pledged their Governments to continue fighting together against the Axis Powers. (From the UN web site.)

The Idea Becomes Reality – Oct. 24, 1945
In 1945, representatives of 50 countries met in San Francisco at the United Nations Conference on International Organization to draw up the United Nations Charter. Those delegates deliberated on the basis of proposals worked out by the representatives of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States at Dumbarton Oaks, United States in August-October 1944.
