Book/Printed Material The League of Nations: A Pictorial Survey.
About this Item
- The League of Nations: A Pictorial Survey.
- The League of Nations: A Pictorial Survey is a small book, published in 1925 by the Information Section of the League Secretariat and updated in 1928, intended to educate the general public about the nature and purpose of the League. It explains the organizational structure of the League and its main institutions-Assembly, Council, and Permanent Secretariat-and associated bodies such as the International Labour Organisation and the Permanent Court of International Justice. A flow chart on page nine shows the relationship between the executive and legislative bodies of the League and the specialized committees responsible for addressing such issues as refugee resettlement, health, and disarmament. The publication highlights what were regarded as League successes, including the mandate system used to administer territories formerly belonging to the Ottoman and German empires, the resolution of post-World War I refugee problems in Eastern Europe, and measures to afford international protection to minorities in certain League states. Prominent advocates of the League, delegates to the Assembly, and members of committees are pictured, including U.S. president Woodrow Wilson, scientist Albert Einstein, and former foreign minister of Belgium and first president of the League Assembly Paul Hymans. The book is from the archives of the League, which were transferred to the United Nations in 1946 and are housed at the UN office in Geneva. They were inscribed on the UNESCO Memory of the World register in 2010.
