Hi Brandon,

Most likely there might be duplicates of those discs in the NBC radio collection at the Library of Congress. There also might be recordings of these at The Paley Center (formally the Museum of Television & Radio) in New York City. Now this is a long shot but there might be copies at The UN.

We have 146 16" discs of the UN planning sessions in San Francisco, 1945. 

The ones we've played anyway appear to be NBC radio broadcasts. We're considering these taking on 
as a new project; first however, I need to know if copies of these recordings exist elsewhere. If so, then 
we might reconsider or (better) consider partnering with other institutions to get these done in full. 

Here's a link to our finding aid (such as it is): 

Any info you might have is appreciated.
