She began by photocopying FH covers at her office, proofread eighty issues, chaired three conferences, wrote articles and thirty-four Churchilltrivia columns, co-hosted eight tours, and has maintained the mailing list since 1970: Barbara Langworth (above, winning a 1995 Blenheim Award) deserves all the awards in the world for her devotion to duty, and to the editor. Thanks, Barbara.

FIRST FEATURE ARTICLE: SPANISH WALLPAPER

“The Spanish Civil War brought its flood tide of charity labels. The most common is the Sin Valor type of the 1940s. A new use has been found for the blue 10 centavos value: red overprints have been applied reputedly in Churchill’s ‘Memory’ by unspeakably vulturous speculators ….” -Harry F. Rooke, FH 3

FIRST BOOK REVIEW

Jennie, The Life of Lady Randolph Churchill, by Ralph Martin, speaks bluntly about the private lives of Churchill’s parents, but shows Lady Randolph was a great influence on Winston’s life. She introduced him to influential men, and embued him with courage and stamina. -W. Glen Browne, FH 11
