Rome, Italy - March 1955. Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt visited the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations which spring from the Hot Springs Conference of 1943, called by her late husband, President Roosevelt. Mrs Roosevelt said during her visit: "I remember not only the calling of the conference, in Host Springs in which my husband took a tremendous interest, but I also remember the meeting in the White House, because it was the first of the international organization meetings, and I can see all the flags now and remember thinking this is a symbol of beginning to get the nations of the world together to work for their mutual interest. I think FAO has stayed that symbol and is, perhaps of all the specialized agenices of the United Nations, the one dealing with the most basic needs of human beings".
