(p.45) Chapter 4 To Be or Not to Be a Strategic Trusteeship
We Fought the Navy and Won

Doloris Coulter Cogan

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter presents the author's account of writing an article for the Institute of Ethnic Affairs' monthly News Letter, explaining the difference between a “strategic” and a “nonstrategic” trusteeship and why the latter was better for the islands formerly mandated to Japan. She says that the writing assignment may have been the hardest she was ever given. It also describes John Collier's angry reaction to President Truman's announcement in November 1946 that the United States was prepared to place all of Micronesia except Guam under the Security Council. This was to become the only “strategic trusteeship” in the world.

Keywords:   Institute of Ethnic Affairs, strategic trusteeship, nonstrategic trusteeship, John Collier, President Truman, U.N. Security Council
