Hoover Marks 70th Anniversary of UN Charter with New Collection

Friday, June 26, 2015

With the seventieth anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter on June 26, the Archives has received a timely donation of papers and photographs from the estate of Andrew De Metriff, a translator at the San Francisco conference that established the charter. De Metriff, a twenty-five year-old soldier stationed at Fort Ord, was ordered to a special assignment in San Francisco in the spring of 1945. Because of his fluency in Russian, this son of Russian emigrants to the California Valley joined a select group of military and civilian translators in Russian, French, Spanish and Chinese working for the United Nations Conference on International Organizations (UNCIO) meeting in the War Memorial Opera House.
