Can’t get enough Winston Churchill?

If so, Fort Worth Country Day has a deal for you.

The school is hosting a community lecture on Winston Churchill, given by Churchill expert Phil Reed Nov. 6.

Reed is the former director of the Cabinet War Rooms and creator of the Churchill Museum, and now travels internationally to give symposiums on Churchill’s life and accomplishments.

Reed began working as curator at the Imperial War Museum in London in 1975 and was the driving force behind the campaign to create the Churchill Museum at the Cabinet War Rooms, which opened in 2005.

In 2008, Reed was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the New Year’s Honours List for services to museums.

He retired in 2016, but continues as executive director for the Churchill Centre, a U.S.-based global body promoting the heritage of Churchill. Most recently, Reed worked as the historical consultant on the Oscar Award-winning film, Darkest Hour.
