A historical vignette: Goldson at the U.N. in 1967

This is the time when Philip Goldson went to the UN in 1967. Compton Fairweather followed him to the U.N.! See him sitting next to PG.

At that same time, Harry Lyon Morris was the Chairman of the 4th Committee at the U.N. in 1967, when he made an impassioned plea at the 4th Committee about Belize (then British Honduras).

Harry Lyon Morris was the grandson of Dr. Ernest Lyon, who was born in Belize. Dr. Lyon was the former US ambassador to Liberia and later Liberian Consul General in the US.
