BRETTON WOODS, N.H. (AP) - The Mount Washington Hotel and its setting for the genesis of the International Monetary Fund in 1944 is the subject of an upcoming talk.

It’s been nearly 70 years since the Bretton Woods conference laid the groundwork for the fund and the World Bank.

Representatives of 44 countries met at the hotel that July and agreed on a framework for economic cooperation to avoid a repeat of the Great Depression of the 1930s, establishing international monetary protocols governing trade, banking and other financial relations among nations.

Carl Lindblade, a lecturer in the hospitality management department at the University of New Hampshire, is speaking about the conference on April 24 at 7 p.m. at the Pierce Manse in Concord. It’s part of the Pierce Brigade Lecture Series.
