American Movement for World Government
American Movement for World Government (AMWG)'s "mission is to work towards our long-term goal of the establishment of a democratic World Federal Government. We hope to achieve this by working with educational institutions and other peace groups to establish lectures, seminars, symposia, courses of study, and World Peace Institutes.
"AMWG believes the only way to solve and resolve global issues is through the establishment of a democratic World Federal Government.
"That such a world government, could be established through a transformation of the United Nations, a World Constitutional Convention, or other legal means." 
"The American Movement for World Government (AMWG), is a "not for profit" organization established in 1955 by William H.D. Cox, Jr., who became its first president. Mr. Cox, a graduate of Columbia University was a navy fighter pilot in WWII. After leaving the service Mr. Cox entered Yale University Medical School. It was at this time that he became interested in World Federalism. When the professors a Yale Medical School refused to sign a United World Federalist petition, he left the medical school to work in the movement, and began flying for United Airlines. As a senior Captain for United, he served on the Air Lines "Hazardous Affairs Committee."
"Amongst Mr. Cox's role models were: Albert Einstein, Carl Van Doren, and Emery Reves. Mr. Cox, like many veterans, understood the futility of War.
"Mr. Cox retired in the mid 1980's, after he became ill with Alzheimer's disease. His dream lives on.
"The early Advisory Board had many distinguished members: Lawrence Abbott, Isaac Asimov, Edward Asner, Dr. Stringfellow Barr, Cass Canfield, Prof. Richard Falk, John R. Logue, Hugh Nash, Robert S. Nyburg, Stewart M. Ogilvy, Dore Schary, Prof. Bennet Skewes-Cox, Louis Untermeyer, and Edith Wynner."
