October 24, 1967 was proclaimed United Nations Day by President Lyndon B. Johnson. This marked the twenty-second anniversary observance of U.N. Day. In his proclamation, the president called on all American citizens to engage in an appropriate observance of the event. Governor John Dempsey appointed Dr. Frederick W. Lowe, President of Manchester Community College, to serve as U.N. Day Chairman for Connecticut. Similar observances are celebrated on an annual basis. Dr. Lowe was reappointed chairman in 1968. In 1969, Dr. William T. O'Hara of the University of Bridgeport took over the job. State Treasurer Robert I. Berdon became United Nations Day Chairman in 1971.
This collection contains materials that document Connecticut’s U.N. Day celebrations under Lowe. Materials include correspondence, photographs, mailing lists, lists of town United Nations Day chairmen, publicity leaflets and related materials.
