Abstract

Following President Roosevelt’s death, the final negotiations and formative first years of the United Nations fell to Truman. Roosevelt intended the organization to address international crises, and Truman claimed Roosevelt’s legacy, however Truman’s decisions over his nearly eight years in office pushed the United Nations to become afterthought in American foreign policy. This paper examines how the vision for the United Nations changed from Roosevelt to Truman, and its consequences.
