Chapter Summary

In 1960, Merillat was finishing a six-year stint with the Ford Foundation. He had just spent two years in India on a Ford program designed to help establish an Indian Law Institute modelled roughly on the American Law Institute. The Consultative Committee on Expanded Program of the Society was charged with charting the new directions the Society would take. The Society's regular dues structure had remained constant since 1954. In November 1960, the Executive Council raised the dues in all categories. The Society dedicated Tillar House as its headquarters on April 28, 1961. Until 1960, the Society had been predominantly concerned with classic international law issues - the law of war, the law of the sea, the law of public international institutions. The President of the Society, Arthur Dean, appointed Myres McDougal to chair an ad hoc Committee on a Current Reporting Service.
