Last Tuesday evening the Museum held its second annual Winston Churchill Memorial Lecture.

This year’s speaker was Sir Robert Worcester KBE DL, the founder of MORI, one of Britain’s most distinguished political analysts. A native of Kansas City, he moved to the United Kingdom in 1969, where he has served as Chairman of the Pilgrims, as a Member of the Fulbright Commission and as a Governor of the English Speaking Union. Chancellor of the University of Kent, he is also visiting professor at King’s College, London and LSE. He was knighted in 2005 for his “outstanding services rendered to political, social and economic research and for contribution to government policy and programmes.” He currently chairs the Magna Carta 2015 800th Anniversary Commemorative Committee.

In his Churchill lecture, Sir Robert discussed the origins of the special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States. In the question-and-answer session following his talk, he addressed questions on the subject of the forthcoming American elections, and the role of polling organisations in contemporary politics.

Guests to the talk included many of our volunteers, trustees and friends. Here are some photos from the evening.
