Katherine Carter (MA, MRHistS, FRSA) is the Property Curator at Chartwell, National Trust, the former home of Sir Winston Churchill. Chartwell was the Churchills’ primary residence from 1924 until Winston’s death in 1965. For more than forty years his home was his sanctuary as well as his factory. It was the site of his phenomenal political and literary output, the inspiration for his paintbrush and the place so dear to him that he often remarked that “a day away from Chartwell is a day wasted.”

Katherine is a frequent conference speaker and is an advisor to cultural institutions around the world on the preservation of political history and heritage. As an internationally sought-after commentator on twentieth century British history, Katherine appears frequently in print and broadcast media.
