Jean Edward Smith will discuss Churchill’s relations with FDR and Eisenhower, while Elizabeth Edwards Spalding will discuss Churchill and Harry Truman. Churchill and Military Leadership will be examined by Raymond Callahan (Army), Mark Stoler (Genl. George C. Marshall), Christopher Bell (Navy), and Williamson Murray (RAF).

Offering a different perspective will be Mary Jo Blinker, editor of the Eleanor Roosevelt papers, who will discuss the famous First Lady’s perceptions of Churchill.  Randolph Churchill will provide his own assessment of his great-grandfather’s leadership skills as the Friday evening optional dinner speaker.
