Learning about UN history through the voices of people who lived it

Interviewee: Pauline Frederick, UN correspondent for ABC and NBC

A rich collection of interviews covering 25 years of the United Nations' history has been made available to the public on a website.

An official launch of the website is taking place at the UN headquarters on Thursday.

The Library's Oral History collection is made up of close to 200 interviews covering major events since the Organization's founding.

The voices of former delegates, UN staff members and journalists can be heard recounting their experiences.

The audio files include discussions held during the creation of the United Nations Charter.

Also on record are the reflections of staff members who remembered what it was like working at Hunter College before headquarters moved permanently to the east side in New York.
