A sample of the numerous records (as well as some League of Nations documents) related to the United Nations in the Nash collection.
Following the failure of the League of Nations, the United Nations was formed in 1945 in order to maintain peace and promote cooperation in solving international economic, social and humanitarian problems.
New Zealand was one of 51 countries to sign the UN Charter in San Francisco in 1945, and despite its small size and isolation, played a valuable role in its establishment. There are now almost 200 nations belonging to the United Nations.
