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.)
