The League of Nations, a precursor to the United Nations, was an international organization formed as a result of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. It remains of historical global importance as one of the first international bodies convened to work on the prevention of war, collective security through disarmament, conflict resolution between nations, and the general improvement of global welfare.
In addition to being a rich source of committee memberships and country representatives, this site provides photos of: Personalities, Assemblies, Councils, Delegations, Commissions, Conferences, the Secretariat, the Permanent Court of International Justice, the Bureau International du Travail, and miscellaneous photos.
