[HAMMARSKJÖLD, DAG / PHOTOGRAPHS].
[A collection of original photographs from the United Nations Press Department documenting Hammarskjöld's time as General Secretary]. (New York) 1953-1961.
. Dag Hammarskjöld, a Swedish economist and diplomat who served as the second Secretary-General of the United Nations 1953-61. He died in a plane crash in Northern Rhodesia on his way to cease-fire negotiations during the Congo Crisis. He was awarded a posthumous Nobel Prize.This collection contains 22 photos (25.4 x 20.5 cm) of Hammarskjöld's time in office including photos from different UN Security Council meetings, press conferences and assemblies, and others from his official visits to Burma, Thailand, Congo and India. The photos have printed captions on the reverse. Another 29 photos were taken at his New York suite at the UN headquarters just days after his plane crash. The photos illustrate the conference room, his office, the social areas and a private area, all elegantly decorated with contemporary furniture, notable pieces of art, and his collection of books. The UN has one of the world's finest art collections with contributions from its member States. Hammarskjöld refined the collection with works of art that would coincide with the UN's vision of a world at peace. Provenance: Count Wilhelm Hans Fredrik Wachtmeister (1923-2012), who served as the Swedish ambassador to the United States between 1974 and 1989. He is included in a photo taken during Hammarskjöld's visit to India in 1959 when W. served as his personal secretary.
