This subseries documents Baruch's activities as the United States representative to the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission, 1946, a commission founded by the first resolution of the U.N. General Assembly to make recommendations on the peaceful use of atomic energy. Baruch presented a plan, known as the Baruch Plan, which called for U.N. control of future atomic development in the member nations and the destruction of the existing U.S. atomic arsenal. While received favorably by the commission, the plan was ultimately not adopted. This subseries contains policy papers, correspondence, proposals, committee records, reports, subject files, and speeches and articles.


Roughly divided into sections regarding policy, studies, and subject files.
