Dumbarton Oaks Microsite

Sessions

The Dumbarton Oaks Conversations were held in two phases. The first, between 21 August and 28 September 1944, involved representatives of the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The second, between 29 September and 7 October 1944, brought together representatives of China, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Since the Russian and Chinese delegations could not meet at the same time and at the same place, the organizers took pains to hold the talks with the Chinese delegates at the same place where the conversations with the Soviet cohort were held.
