From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The United Nations Conference on International Organization (UNCIO) was a convention of delegates from 50 Allied nations that took place from 25 April 1945 to 26 June 1945 in San Francisco, United States. At this convention, the delegates reviewed and rewrote the Dumbarton Oaks agreements.[1] The convention resulted in the creation of the United Nations Charter, which was opened for signature on 26 June.

The conference was chaired by U.S. diplomat Alger Hiss.[2]

A square in downtown San Francisco, called "UN Plaza," commemorates the conference. It is located adjacent to the city's Civic Center.
