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
