I would like to thank Folger’s Shakespeare’s Library for inviting Jennie Churchill and me to participate in this evening’s event.

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.

Jennie Churchill Opens the ‘Churchill’s Shakespeare’ Exhibit By Jennie 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.
