Interviews with Brian Urquhart : [8] Collection home page

Sir Brian Urquhart, a veteran international civil servant who helped guide the United Nations from its inception through decades of dramatic challenges, was one of the Organization's first staff members. He served with various Secretaries-General throughout his 40-year career, including Dag Hammarskjöld, who led the UN from 1953-1961 until his death in a plane crash on 18 September 1961 while trying to bring about a ceasefire during the attempted secession of Katanga from the Democratic Republic of the Congo [then called Republic of Congo].

Upon Hammarskjöld’s death, Sir Brian helped organize his private papers and was instrumental in their posthumous publication as Markings. He subsequently penned the biography, Hammarskjöld.
