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.
Opening remarks by Jennie Churchill for the ‘Churchill’s Shakespeare’ exhibit at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
My great grandfather first visited the United States in 1895, just before his twentieth birthday.
At that time, he did not like your press or your currency but he did love your hospitality.
It was on his first visit to Washington, D.C. in 1900 that he met the first on many Presidents of the `United States
That President was William McKinley.
He was to be the first of very many with whom, Winston met and developed relationships
Famously, Churchill is rightly credited with developing the modern special relationship between our two countries.
Given that he was himself the product of an Anglo-American special relationship this was not only a strategic necessity but a natural evolution.
