1. Cordell Hull (1945) Marker
Inscription.  Cordell Hull, Secretary of State for 11 years during President Franklin Roosevelt's administration, worked with countries to increase trade and lower taxes on imports and exports. During WWII, Hull worked to improve cooperation among the Allied Nations. Hull received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 for his important role in the creation of the United Nations.

I am certain that, however great the hardships and the trials which loom ahead, our America will endure and the cause of human freedom will triumph.

Also see . . .  Cordell Hull (NobelPrize.org). "In 1945, the year of Norway's liberation from Nazi-German occupation, the Nobel Committee wished to show its support for the establishment of the new world organization, the United Nations. This was done by awarding the Peace Prize to Cordell Hull, the man known as the "father of the United Nations". The decision has a parallel in 1920, when President Woodrow Wilson received the same distinction as the chief architect behind the League of Nations." (Submitted on October 7, 2020.)
