In 1945 Ball began close collaboration with Jean Monnet and the French government in its economic recovery in its negotiations regarding the Marshall Plan. In 1950 he helped draft the Schuman Plan and the European Coal and Steel Community Treaty. He played a major role in the in Stevenson's presidential campaign in 1952. He was the liaison between Stevenson and President Truman, and help publicize Stevenson's viewpoint in major magazine articles. He was the executive director of the Volunteers for Stevenson, focused on winning over independent and Republican voters. It was also a speechwriter in the Stevenson campaign. Ball likewise played a major role in Stevenson's 1956 presidential campaign, and his unsuccessful 1960 bid to gain the Democratic nomination.[2]

A Quote by George Ball

PageQuoteDate
The Deep State and 9/11“Many of the people who were associated with the war were looking for any excuse to initiate bombing. The sending of a destroyer up the Tonkin Gulf was primarily for provocation. ... There was a feeling that if the destroyer got into some trouble, that it would provide the provocation we needed. [1]1977
