Interview with A.R.K. MacKenzie by William Powell
A member of the 1945 United Nations founding Committee, Archie Mackenzie (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 1915 - 2012) served for more than 32 years of diplomatic service for the United Kingdom in several posts, including to Burma, Cyprus, France, Thailand, Tunisia, the United States and Yugoslavia.
Seeing the birth of the United Nations at Dumbarton Oaks and in San Francisco, Mr. Mackenzie discusses the role that public information played at the beginning of the Organization in this interview conducted on 31 May 1985. Here, Mr. MacKenzie evaluates the media attention of the meeting at Dumbarton Oaks, the San Francisco Conference, the first Security Council meetings and veto and how the first Secretary-General, Trygve Lie, dealt with the press.
