Maurice Pate (October 14, 1894 - January 19, 1965) was an American humanitarian and businessman. With Herbert Hoover, Pate co-founded the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in 1947 and served as its first executive director from 1947 until his death in 1965. Talking about the United Nations, Dag Hammarskj ld, its second Secretary-General, said, "The work of UNICEF is at the heart of the matter - and at the heart of UNICEF is Maurice Pate." Hoover called Pate "the most effective human angel I know" when introducing Pate at a UNICEF dinner. Pate was recognized worldwide for his efforts on behalf of children and hungry people. He was born in Pender, Nebraska to Richard E. Pate and Rachel Davis Pate, both of Welsh ancestry. He was the oldest of seven children, three of whom died in infancy. His family moved to Denver, Colorado, when he was three years old. He graduated from East Denver High School in Denver, Colorado in 1911, then left Denver for Princeton University.
