Collection Description

Historical Note

The International Monetary Conferences were a series of assemblies that were first held in the second half of the 19th Century and continued well into the 20th century. The purpose of the meetings was to establish an International Monetary Fund and International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The Fund and Bank (later known as the World Bank) function to promote international monetary cooperation, expansion of international trade and stability of exchange, to assist in establishment of multilateral system of payments for transactions between members and to permit members, under certain conditions, to draw upon resources of Fund for specified purposes. By the 1946 Conference, 38 countries had become members. The conference was held at the General Oglethorpe Hotel, Wilmington Island, off Savannah from March 8 to 22, 1946. In attendance were 300 delegates from many countries in the world.
