The Screen Guide

Herbert Vere Evatt - idealist, internationalist, lawyer and politician - earned international recognition for himself and his country in San Francisco. His passionate advocacy of the rights and powers of smaller nations greatly influenced the way the UN would operate for decades to come. Known as 'the Doc', Herbert Vere Evatt was truly a founding father of the United Nations. In 1948 he was made president of the UN General Assembly, becoming the only Australian ever to hold that office.
