The National WWII Museum will host its third Churchill Symposium on May 18, featuring talks from four noted historians and authors.  A partnered program organized by the Museum in partnership with The Churchill Society of New Orleans, the symposium explores the life and legacy of Winston S. Churchill, the British prime minister who rallied his country in its darkest hours to fight against the Nazis in the Second World War.

“This will be our third Churchill program,” said Dr. Gordon H. “Nick” Mueller, president and chief executive officer of the Museum. “We’re welcoming historians from across North America for what promises to be a deep dive into every facet of Churchill’s personality, life and times. Churchill and WWII enthusiasts alike won’t want to miss this highly anticipated event.”

Lecturers include:
• Dr. Michael Shelden, author of Young Titan: The Making of Winston Churchill and a professor of English and Literature at Indiana State University
• Dr. Christopher M. Bell, an associate professor of military/naval history and modern English history at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Bell’s book, Churchill and Sea Power, explores the wartime leader’s fascination with naval affairs
• Paul Reid, author of The Last Lion, 1940, the third and final volume of the masterful trilogy begun by William Manchester
• Dr. Rob Havers, executive director of the Churchill Memorial and Museum at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., and the author of Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech
The event will be held at the Museum’s Stage Door Canteen, beginning with a breakfast at 7:00 a.m.
