On his PBS series last month, Charlie Rose hosted a spirited panel discussion on the life of Winston S. Churchill. His guests were in New York for the occasion of the opening of The Churchill Archives exhibit at the Morgan Library in New York, Winston Churchill: The Power of Words.
The exhibition opened in lower Manhattan on June 8th to great applause.
The elegant crowd at the Morgan for the opening evening included London’s Mayor Borris Johnson and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg among the 300 guests.
Mrs. Schlossberg’s father, President John F. Kennedy was the first American president to confer an honorary U.S. Citizenship and that distinction went to Winston S. Churchill. Among the many documents and artifacts on display for the exhibition this summer is Churchill’s American passport.
The exhibit runs through September 2012.
