- CHURCHILL CENTER
The life and times of Sir Winston Churchill are re-created in photographs, models, paintings and personal effects.
This tribute to the great British leader
is given by People-to-People, an organization founded and headed
by ex-President Eisenhower and dedicated to international understanding.
Included in exhibits documenting Sir Winston's career are some
of his own paintings, and photographs of him at various periods
in his life. Also on display are a replica of Churchill's study
at Chartwell; models of Blenheim Palace, where he was born, and
Bladon churchyard, where he lies buried; and an exhibit of his
personal effects, including his desk, which once belonged to
Disraeli. Proceeds from admission charges will go to a fund to
create an international educational institution to teach foreign
affairs and perpetuate Sir Winston's ideas.
