On February 6

On this day in ...
... 1946, the judges of the League 0f Nations-era Permanent Court of International Justice having resigned days earlier, election of the 1st members of the International Court of Justice took place at the 1st session of the United Nations' General Assembly and Security Council. Judge José Gustavo Guerrero (left) of El Salvador, the last President of the PCIJ, would be elected the ICJ's President in April; a month later, the new court would get its 1st case, Corfu Channel.
