Vandenberg, Arthur, 1884-1951

A Republican Senator from Michigan and eminent internationalist, Vandenberg was a United States delegate to the San Francisco Conference of April to June 1945 at which the United Nations Charter was signed. Although he was a confirmed isolationist, his views had changed by the end of the war and it was he who insured that the Senate passed and ratified the Charter.
