The early days of UNESCO’s programme on behalf of museums and monuments were a challenging time of innovation, ingenuity and teamwork, which inspired international recognition of the importance of the cultural heritage and of the Organization’s groundbreaking efforts in this field. The results of these achievements are still visibile today – including the continued publication of Museum International. And who better to tell this story than one of UNESCO’s first cultural heritage specialists, Hiroshi Daifuku, who joined the Organization in 1954, after having begun his academic and museum career in the United States, and went on to become the Chief of the Monuments and Sites Section. Author of more than fifty articles on cultural heritage, he retired from UNESCO in 1980 and works as a consultant in Washington, D.C.
