Hillsdale College Acquires Cohen Churchill Recordings Collection

Hills­dale Col­lege has acquired the world’s most com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion of Churchill record­ings. Many are very rare because they reach back over a cen­tu­ry.

The col­lec­tion was gen­er­ous­ly donat­ed by col­lec­tor and bib­li­og­ra­ph­er Ronald I. Cohen of Ottawa, Ontario. Among the 300 record­ings are 100 speech­es and 24 read­ings from Churchill’s war mem­oirs.

Hills­dale Col­lege has a long-stand­ing com­mit­ment to lead­er­ship stud­ies through The Churchill Project. We encour­age schol­ar­ship in, and com­ple­tion of, the remain­ing vol­umes of The Churchill Doc­u­ments, a series in Churchill’s offi­cial biog­ra­phy.

In 2004 he pub­lished an invalu­able ref­er­ence, The Anno­tat­ed Bib­li­og­ra­phy of Works About Sir Win­ston S. Churchill, signed copies of which are still avail­able from Mark Weber, the Churchill Book Spe­cial­ist.…
