The George Washington University has formed a philanthropic partnership with the International Churchill Society (formerly known as the Churchill Centre). Housed on the first floor of the Estelle and Melvin Gelman Library, this will be the first major research facility in the nation’s capital dedicated to the study of Winston Churchill.
Winston Churchill’s leadership and diplomacy during trying times provide a mirror for the global challenges today’s leaders face and the decisions that will impact the world. The new Center, through its collections, interdisciplinary academic programs, and educational exhibits, will offer GW students, faculty, researchers, and the public the opportunity to examine the life and legacy of Churchill.
The International Churchill Society can be found at www.winstonchurchill.org.
