The International Monetary Conference at Bretton Woods DESCRIPTION:Part of the 2019 Grand Hotels Summer Speaker Series\nJoin us for this special presentation by Carl Lindblade\, an amateur White Mountain Historian who serves as the official IMF story teller for the Omni Mt. Washington. \nThe Mount Washington Hotel had been shuttered for 3 years during WW II\, but with a combination of politics and luck was selected as the site for this Conference\, which created both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund\, financial entities that were largely responsible for rebuilding Europe after World War II.  700 Delegates from 44 Nations arrived war- weary as the Conference convened just 3 weeks after D-Day but which had been envisioned by FDR and Churchill in August of 1941. “Bretton Woods”\, even today is in the news almost every month. Oh – and the chief US negotiator was a Russian Spy. \nCarl Lindblade\, a well known White Mountain Hotelier and Tourism Faculty Member at both UNH and Plymouth\, has an interest in the role that Hotels play in our History. He’s considered a lively presenter on White Mountain and New Hampshire History done with wisdom and occasional wit. Indeed\, he taught a course at Plymouth “Topics in New Hampshire’s Tourism History.” \n URL: LOCATION:34 Highland Street\, Plymouth\, NH\, 03264\, United States ORGANIZER;CN="Museum%20of%20the%20White%20Mountains" END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
