Evatt, Herbert, 1894-1965

Evatt was an Australian lawyer and statesman. In 1941 he became Minister of External Affairs and worked hard to increase Australia’s influence on world affairs. He traveled extensively and was the Australian representative to the British War Cabinet. At the end of the war he was a keen advocate of the United Nations because he felt Australia and smaller nations would be able to voice their opinions. He also tried to have the veto power of the great nations restricted.
