Hillsdale Churchill Conference, February 2017

Hillsdale Churchill Conference

Balmy tem­per­a­tures and a record turnout of 700 marked our event fea­tur­ing Nigel Farage  as keynote speak­er at Hills­dale Col­lege‘s Churchill Con­fer­ence and Din­ner, held in con­junc­tion with the “The Art of Win­ston Churchill: An Exhi­bi­tion at Hills­dale Col­lege.” Like most Hills­dale edu­ca­tion­al events, there were no reg­is­tra­tion fees or meal charges, all of which are pre-fund­ed. The paint­ings, orga­nized by the Nation­al Churchill Muse­um, Ful­ton, were on dis­play from Jan­u­ary through March.)

Videos of all pre­sen­ta­tions are post­ed. Click here.

NigelNigel Farage built the UK Inde­pen­dence Par­ty from a fringe group to the point where it dom­i­nat­ed UK elec­tions for the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment and was a key force in Britain’s June 2016 vote to leave the Euro­pean Union.

To say Mr. Farage is con­tro­ver­sial would be an under­state­ment, and there is no deny­ing his col­or­ful per­son­al­i­ty, pow­er­ful advo­ca­cy and skill in debate. Shar­ing our admi­ra­tion of Sir Win­ston Churchill makes Nigel of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to us at the Hills­dale Col­lege Churchill Project, which is soon com­plet­ing the Churchill offi­cial biography.

Hills­dale has spon­sored three pre­vi­ous Churchill events and is plan­ning more at var­i­ous venues, includ­ing the Allen P. Kir­by Cen­ter for Con­sti­tu­tion­al Stud­ies and Cit­i­zen­ship in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. In 2018, Hills­dale will cel­e­brate com­plet­ing Win­ston S. Churchill—at 31 vol­umes the longest biog­ra­phy in history—on the 50th anniver­sary of the death of Ran­dolph Churchill, its orig­i­nal author.
