On this day in 1930...


St. Paul's Frank B. Kellogg wins the Nobel Peace Prize.

Kellogg served as Secretary of State for Calvin Coolidge's administration, as well as a judge on the Permanent Court of International Justice.

The Kellogg-Briand pact, which earned him the Nobel prize, was a treaty that provided "the renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy." Kellogg's treaty that outlawed war was worked on and finalized with Aristide Briand.

Kellogg's award would not have been possible without Alfred Nobel, who on this day 35 years earlier signed his final will that would outline the creation and funding of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Kellogg's house in St. Paul was named a national landmark in 1976, and Kellogg boulevard in St. Paul is named for him, as is Frank B. Kellogg High School in Little Canada.
