These Holmes lectures were delivered on April 17, 18 and 19, 1961, the week of the abortive Cuban in-vasion. Months earlier I chose the United Nations as the subject of the lectures because I felt that amid professions of faith in the Charter there has been in recent years a perceptible decline in the use of the United Nations for the peaceful settlement or con-tainment of international conflicts.

Supreme Court justices. Holmes was the son of an important Boston family. Through his father, a distinguished doctor and writer-poet, he was brought into contact with leading New England thinkers, drawing from them not only ideas but also the desire to achieve great things intellectually. His later development of this test, coupled with his emphasis on a basically unregulated ‘marketplace of ideas,’ was seminal for the development of modern free-speech law.

The American Constitution established a government with power to act; the United Nations Charter set up an instrument for international cooperation. "Both," Mr. Cohen says, "created an organism capable of life and growth depending not simply on the written injunctions of the founding fathers but on the vision and wisdom of succeeding generations." These Oliver Wendell Holmes Lectures, given at Harvard University in 1961, are written in a spare, firm style, excluding trivialities and expressing the authors remarkable acumen. The first lecture Charter Power: The Competence of United Nations Organs under the Charter describes the setting in broad perspective. The second Responsibilities of Member States Under the Charter deals with major problems. The third lecture envisions the future with restraint and wisdom. Benjamin V. Cohen, a Washington lawyer who helped draft the Securities Exchange Act and other important New Deal legislation for President Roosevelt, watched the United Nations grow. Among other appointments, he was Counselor to the State Department 1945-1957; U.S. Representative in the U.N. General Assembly, 1948-1952; and U.S. Representative before the International Court of Justice at the Hague, 1950, and in the U.N. Disarmament Commission, 1952.
