Chapter Summary

Cordell Hull, the U.S. Secretary of State from 1933 to 1944 and the Society's President from 1939 to 1942, was destined to become a Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 1945. In the spring of 1943, George Finch, who had become Director of the Division of International Law at the Carnegie Endowment, notified the Society's Executive Council that his duties at the Endowment would require him to retire as Secretary of the Society as well as Managing Editor of the Journal. In 1941, the Nominating Committee, chaired by Norman J. Padelford, addressed the criteria that should be used in selecting members of the Executive Council. George Finch made a presentation at the 1945 meeting that harkened back to the faith in international third-party dispute-settlement held by most of the Society's founders. An exchange of correspondence in January 1945 captures the limits of the Society's vision at that time.
