United Nations

As the tail end of the post-World- War-II generation, I boosted the United Nations as a forum for identifying and solving issues of peace, war, and humane development. At Grinnell I led the International Relations Club supported by Professor Phil Thomas (who identified himself as an underdeveloped unbalanced economist). For three years running, I attended the New York City annual meetings of the Collegiate Council for the U.N. and was elected National CCUN vice president. This year, 2019, I am teaching a course, The U.N. and Global Order, at North Carolina State University.
