The Legacy of the Third Republic
Donald C. McKay taught at Harvard University for many years before he joined the faculty at Amherst College in 1956. He was the author, among other works, of The United States and France (1951), and editor of a biographical series, Makers of Modern Europe, and the American Foreign Policy Library. He has served as a trustee of the Harvard- Yenching Institute (1950–1956) and of the World Peace Foundation (1953–1959). As a member of the World Peace Foundation he helped plan one conference of French and American leaders at Arden House in March, 1956, resulting in the publication of Diversity of Worlds, by Raymond Aron and August Heckscher, and a second conference at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Paris in March, 1958. Dr. McKay, who was directing some graduate students at Harvard University, had been appointed a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, 1959—1960. The editors of Current History regret the untimely death of Professor McKay on April 2, 1959.
