Inscription.  Frank Kellogg, Secretary of State 1925-1929, believed in the peaceful resolution of international disputes. He signed 80 treaties and co-authored the Kellogg-Briand Pact, a treaty discouraging war as a way of solving problems between countries. Kellogg persuaded 64 countries to sign this Pact. The Kellogg-Briand Pact is one of the foundations for international war crimes trials today. Kellogg received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1929 for a treaty linking the United States and France in friendship.

Competition in armament...is not only a terrible burden upon the people, but I believe it to be one of the greatest menaces to the peace of the world.

Almost all the world's states signed this pact, which prohibited wars of aggression. The original initiative came from the French Foreign Minister and Peace Prize Laureate Aristide Briand. He had sought a Franco-American agreement which would keep France secure from German revanchism after Germany's defeat in World War I. The United States was not interested, so Kellogg proposed a more extensive but looser pact. In addition, he demanded exceptions, to prevent harm to US interests on the American continent. This led to disagreement
