Participation by the United States in the work of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA)

[Documentation concerning United States relations with other countries on subjects pertaining to UNRRA is indexed under the individual countries. For documentation relating to handling of displaced persons, repatriation, and transfer of populations, see pages 128 ff. The position of the United States with regard to assumption by the United Nations of certain of UNRRA’s functions after the termination of UNRRA is summarized in Yearbook of the United Nations (United Nations, 1947), pages 71–72, 155–164; for further references, see ibid., page 988.

Unpublished material in the Department of State on United States participation in UNRRA is located principally in the 840.50 UNRRA decimal file. Published information on the Fourth (March 15–30), Fifth (August 5–17), and Sixth (December 10–14) UNRRA Council sessions may be found in the Journals for the respective sessions. UNRRA’s official history is contained in George Woodbridge, UNNRA: The History of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, 3 volumes (New York, Columbia University Press, 1950).]
