Monday, April 9, 2018

Every year, the Library of Congress adds twenty-five sound recordings to its National Recording Registry of historical documents that showcase “the range and diversity of American recorded sound heritage.” The latest additions were announced on March 21st and include a series of radio broadcasts held by the Hoover Archives. Titled “Proceedings of the United Nations Conference on International Organization (4/25–6/26, 1945),” the 146 lacquer discs in Hoover’s United Nations Conference on International Organization proceedings collection include plenary sessions, committee meetings, the arrival of President Truman, and the signing of the UN Charter. The collection is the only known copy of what is understood to be the de facto official audiovisual record of the conference.
