Churchill Centre (Washington, DC 20036-4603)
James W. Muller (Project Director: March 2009 to July 2011)
Winston Churchill and the Anglo-American Relationship

A three-week school teacher summer institute for twenty-four participants on Winston Churchill's role in twentieth-century history, to be held in Cambridge and London, England.

This Institute, a repeat of our 2008 program, is a three-pronged approach to examining the Anglo-American relationship through the life, reflections, and experiences of Winston Churchill: a classroom experience of lectures, discussions and personal responses to the readings and films; individual research by teachers using primary documents from the Churchill Archives, Churchill College, Cambridge; and visits to major Churchill sites in Britain. Churchill was himself the product of an Anglo-American relationship: his mother was the American Jennie Jerome and his father was Lord Randolph Churchill, a son of the Duke of Marlborough. The Institute will primarily focus on Churchill's role in the major events of the twentieth century, but because he was a lifelong student of Americans and American history, his views on our country from its earliest settlers and the American Revolution to Eisenhower's role in the Suez Crisis of 1956 are pertinent to the relationship.

Churchill Centre (Washington, DC 20036-4603)
James W. Muller (Project Director: March 2007 to August 2009)
Winston Churchill and the Anglo-American Relationship

A three-week summer institute in Great Britain for twenty-four teachers on the Anglo-American relationship in the 20th century as seen through the life of Winston Churchill.

This three-week Institute for twenty-four teachers, organized by The Churchill Centre in Washington, D.C., meets for two weeks in Cambridge, England, at the Churchill Archives Centre and for one week in London at Goodenough College. Participants examine the Anglo-American relationship through the life, reflections, and experiences of Winston Churchill. The Institute includes lectures, discussions, and participants' personal responses to readings and films; projects using primary documents from the Archives Centre; and visits to Churchill sites. Churchill was the product of an Anglo-American relationship: his mother was the American Jennie Jerome and his father was Lord Randolph Churchill, son of the Duke of Marlborough. The Institute focuses on Churchill's role in major events of the twentieth century, but his views as a lifelong student of American history, from our earliest settlers and the American Revolution to Eisenhower's role in the Suez Crisis, illuminate the relationship.
