Chapter Summary

Since the early years of the Society's existence, its leaders had regarded it as a scientific body and its Journal as an organ of scientific expression. World War II ended with the Society in reasonably good health. Membership had begun to build again after the wartime decline. Even though membership was on the upswing in the immediate post-war years, the Society's finances remained in their usual precarious state. Aside from annual grants by the Carnegie Endowment in the USD 5,000 to 9,000 range, income continued to be almost entirely from membership dues and subscriptions to the Journal. The Journal's impact on the teaching of international law is relatively clear. During the immediate post-war period, the Journal received quite a few requests from teachers, from publishers of academic texts and from adult education programs for permission to reprint a wide variety of articles that had appeared in its pages.
