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.
