Dignitaries On Board

Arriving at Southampton from New York aboard the R. M. S. Queen Mary on this day in 1947:

Mr. Andrei Vyshinsky, Soviet Minister of Foreign Affairs (who told interviewers in his cabin that "some of the U.N. work was good. Some was bad. I am not completely satisfied.")

Jan Masaryk, Czechoslovakian delegate to the U.N.

Sir Hartley Shawcross, British Attorney General

Hector MacNeil, British Minister of State
