Churchill Archives Centre has an active exhibitions and outreach programme displaying not only the Churchill Papers, but also material from the many other collections held here at the Centre.
In addition to the displays advertised here, we regularly stage events at Churchill College, and are able to offer guided tours for interested groups. Information on recent events is available here, and for our online exhibitions see the Image gallery page.
The 2014 Stephen Roskill Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Mr Jonathan Fenby CBE, China author and expert, on Thursday, 20 February at 5.30 pm in the Wolfson Lecture Theatre, Churchill College. All are welcome to the lecture, but registration is essential via eventbrite at https://roskilllecture14.eventbrite.co.uk.
The Churchill Archives Centre is proud to hold the personal papers of Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay (1883-1945), the naval leader responsible for organising the Dunkirk evacuation (Operation Dynamo) and the naval aspect of the D-Day landings (Operation Neptune). Ramsay's tragic death in an airplane accident in 1945 prevented him from contributing to the analysis and history of these great events. Now, as we approach the seventieth anniversary of the Normandy landings, and with the imminent publication of a biography of Ramsay by Dr Andrew Gordon, it seems appropriate to revisit his contribution with his papers as a backdrop.
The symposium will be held in the Wolfson Lecture Theatre, Churchill College, 1:45pm - 6:30pm. The afternoon will feature two panels, one on Dunkirk and one on D-Day, and will feature a key note presentation by Dr Andrew Gordon. Panellists at time of press include: Correlli Barnett, Robin Brodhurst, Professor Richard Harding, Rear Admiral Hill, Professor Andrew Lambert, and Major General Julian Thompson.
