Inside UN Headquarters, New York

A view of a section of the Woodrow Wilson Reading Room on the second floor of the Dag Hammarskjöld Library at UN Headquarters.

The room, which seats 36 persons, houses the collections of books and documents presented to the United Nations in 1950 by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. An unusual feature is the white pine ceiling which curves from a height of 22 feet at the windows to a height of 12 feet at the opposite wall, Bookcases are of Idaho white pine. Chairs and tables are of African wedge wood.
