    Then U.S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall traveled to Harvard University to give a speech in which he offered American aid to a destitute and fragile Europe if it proved willing and able to help itself. This speech launched The Marshall Plan and as a result, between 1948 and 1950, the U.S. channeled $12 billion into the European Recovery Program. He was later awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the Marshall Plan in 1953, making him the first career soldier to receive the award.
