They will be joined by Churchill biographer Paul Reid, who will deliver the annual Enid and R. Crosby Kemper Lecture at 2 p.m. on March 2. This event is free and open to the public. Reid's lecture is titled, "Churchill, A Portrait of Leadership."

Other activities include the Churchill Fellows Dinner on March 1 and the "Ask the Churchill Expert's Brunch" at 11:30 a.m. on March 2. More information about these can be found at http://www.nationalchurchillmuseum.org/churchillweekend.html.

Reid, a former feature writer for The Palm Beach Post, completed The Last Lion: William Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, the long anticipated third volume of William Manchester's best-selling biography of Sir Winston Churchill. Manchester, who was in ill health at the time, asked Reid to complete this project one year before his death in 2004.

The National Churchill Museum on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, MO is the only North American institution fully devoted to immortalizing the life and work of Churchill. The heart of the Museum is the magnificent Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a 17th century Christopher Wren church left in ruin from German bombings during World War II. This beautiful house of worship was brought stone by stone from England to Westminster and restored on campus in 1969.
