Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book The American Society of International Law's First Century: 1906-2006 contains a list of honorary members from the period 1959 - 2006. The American peace movement was an odd collection of visionaries, world federalists and "legalists". The legalists included lawyers, diplomats and academics who placed their faith in formal dispute-settlement mechanisms as the means for avoiding war. The American legalists were part of a wider body of like-minded persons striving to develop international law as an instrument of peace. American participants in the Hague Peace Conferences of 1899 and 1907 placed great faith in the concepts of arbitration and adjudication.
