Opening Remarks, 35th International Churchill Conference, Williamsburg, Virginia
November 10, 2018
Michael F Bishop is the Director of the National Churchill Library and Center at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and the Executive Director of the International Churchill Society.
Thank you, Laurence, for your remarks and your leadership, and thanks to our Vice-Chairman, Jean-Paul Montupet, for all that you do. We have with us this weekend a number of distinguished International Churchill Society board members, and we thank them for their time and generosity.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the 35th International Churchill Conference. It is fitting and proper that we should meet in Colonial Williamsburg–one of the cradles of democracy–a form of government which Churchill did so much to save.
The Folger Library in Washington, D.C. recently opened a new exhibit, ‘Churchill’s Shakespeare.’ The following are the remarks from the opening by International Churchill Society Chairman Laurence Geller CBE.
On behalf of all of us at the ICS, let me thank Folger’s Michael Witmore and Georgianna Ziegler for making this wonderful exhibition and event possible.
It is an honor to share this platform with Mathew Barzun whose passion for education added to his so well performed day job made him amongst the best US Ambassadors to the Court of James in modern times.
I would also like to thank the Churchill Archive’s Centre Director, the astonishingly versatile Allen Packwood not only for his involvement in this exhibition, for his participation, energy, humor and always unfettered passion and enthusiasm for all things Churchill.
Westminster College President Fletcher Lamkin and Senior Churchill Fellow Philip Boeckman, both Board Members of the International Churchill Society, cordially invite you to:

On this day in 1940, Winston Churchill gave to the House of Commons what many consider to be his most famous speech: "Their Finest Hour". This speech was made following France’s armistice, and espoused British national survival in the face of Nazi tyranny.
This speech can be read in full in Winston Churchill’s "The War Speeches", found in the first volume "Into Battle" (which was published in the U.S. and Canada under the title "Blood, Sweat and Tears"). We have many fine copies of "The War Speeches", including a newly acquired, Churchill-signed copy that can be found on our website by searching "208643".
The International Churchill Society (ICS), founded in 1968 shortly after Churchill's death, is the world’s preeminent member organisation dedicated to preserving the historic legacy of Sir Winston Churchill.
At a time when leadership is challenged at every turn, that legacy looms larger and remains more relevant than ever.
