Several important steps have been completed in the establishment of the National Churchill Library and Center at the George Washington University. Concept renderings of the space, created by architecture firm Cox Graae & Spack, have been produced, and fundraising and planning activities are well underway.
The library and center will provide a permanent American home for studies of 20th-century leader Sir Winston Churchill. The Churchill Centre, a Chicago-based international educational organization devoted to preserving the legacy of Winston Churchill, agreed to establish the National Churchill Library and Center at the George Washington University through an $8 million pledge to the university in January.
The new center will also provide many opportunities for collaboration with sister institutions, including the Churchill Archive, the Churchill War Rooms Museum in London and the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Mo.
