Congressman Usher Burdick of North Dakota and the "Ungodly Menace": Anti-United Nations Rhetoric, 1950-1958
Lemelin, Bernard
Great Plains Quarterly, v22 n3 p163-181 Sum 2002
Representative Usher Burdick, who sat between 1949-1959, contributed to the isolationist label given to North Dakota. This Republican politician, not enthusiastic about U.S. participation in the Korean War, eagerly lambasted foreign aid during the Truman-Eisenhower years. Above all, the congressman attracted attention during the postwar period for his vehement criticism of the United Nations Organization and for his advocacy of an American withdrawal from this international body.
