Coming in Finest Hour 194: Churchill’s Artistic World
PITTSBURGH—I found the theme of the latest issue of Finest Hour pertaining to Churchill’s relationships with US Presidents highly intriguing. Richard Nixon’s recollections of his interactions with Churchill are especially noteworthy. Odd yet intelligent, paranoid but visionary, Nixon seems to have captured many of the essences of Winston.

NASHVILLE—In April of this year, the Churchill Society of Tennessee (CSOT) presented an original oil portrait of Sir Winston Churchill to Governor Bill Lee. The portrait was presented at the State Capitol by CSOT President Jim Drury and the artist, also a CSOT board member, Michael Shane Neal. The portrait now hangs in the Governor’s conference room at the State Capitol in Nashville. Governor Lee was also granted honorary membership in the CSOT.

LONDON—“Gallant Little Wales” she used to be called. I was thrilled when I read about the Welsh divisions which took part in all the fighting preliminary to crossing the Rhine and everywhere, on every occasion distinguished themselves.

CARDIFF—I always like to come to Wales. I was the friend and comrade of the most famous Welshman of our time, David Lloyd George. Most people are unconscious of how much their lives have been shaped by the laws for which Lloyd George was responsible. He it was who launched the Liberal forces of this country effectively into the broad stream of social betterment and social security along which all modern parties now steer. Nowadays this is called “the Welfare State.” We did not christen it, but it was our political child.
— Winston Churchill, election address, 8 February 1950
