The Churchill Centre has formed a partnership with the George Washington University, Washington, DC, to establish the National Churchill Library and Center, which willl be 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 Sir  Winston Churchill.

As both scholar and statesman, Winston Churchill is an inspiring figure in leadership and diplomacy. The new Center, through its collections, interdisciplinary academic programs, and educational exhibits, will offer students, faculty, researchers, and the public the opportunity to examine Churchill’s life and legacy. The Churchill Centre is raising $8 million to fund:

• Facilities – $2 million (estimate)

•  Endowed Professorship of Churchill Studies & 20th Century British History – $2.5 million

•  Endowed Curatorship of the Library and Center – $2.5 million

•  Collection and Programming Endowment – $1 million

The National Churchill Library and Center will open in stages, beginning in 2016. To learn more about how to support this important initiative, please contact Lee Pollock, Executive Director of the Churchill Centre, at (312) 263-5637 or lpollock@winstonchurchill.org
