During World War II, John Foster Dulles helped prepare the United Nations charter at Dumbarton Oaks, in Washington, D.C. In 1945, he served as a senior adviser at the San Francisco United Nations conference. Emboldened by his formidable achievements, Dulles viewed his appointment as secretary of state by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 as a mandate to originate foreign policy, and subsequently made major contributions to U.S. foreign policy during the Cold War era. He resigned in 1959 and died just weeks later, on May 24, 1959, in Washington, D.C.
