World Bank Group Staff Association Oral Histories
The World Bank Group Staff Association was founded in 1972 during the presidency of Robert S. McNamara. It had two broad objectives: fostering a sense of common purpose among staff in the promotion of the aims and objectives of the World Bank Group; and promoting and safeguarding of the rights, interests, and welfare of staff. This collection includes interviews with various chairmen who were instrumental in creating the Staff Association and its administration. While these interviewees also discuss their own specific careers, the goal of these oral histories is to chronicle the history of the World Bank Group Staff Association.
