December 9, 1971

Have you ever tried to create peace between two fighting people? It can be a delicate process, but American diplomat Ralph Bunche had a knack for negotiation, along with excellent training and experience. Bunche died on December 9, 1971, in New York City, but not before many political and personal accomplishments, like winning the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize. His career as diplomat, mediator, educator, writer, social theorist, and political leader began after his education at Harvard University.
