Capital of the World: The Race to Host the United Nations

Wednesday, Oct 16, 2013 6:00p

In 1945–1946, Bostonians pursued an ambitious dream: to become not only “the Hub” but also the Capital of the World—the headquarters site for the new United Nations. Drawing from her book "Capital of the World," award-winning historian Charlene Mires will present an illustrated talk about the dramatic, surprising, and often comic story of civic boosterism awakened by the UN ’s search for a home.
