Abilene, Kan. - Register now for the April Lunch & Learn scheduled for Thursday, April 28 at noon central time. This online event features guest speaker Allen Packwood from the Churchill Archives Centre.

Packwood will discuss the relationship between Churchill and Eisenhower. He will use documents from the Churchill Archives to show how their mutual admiration was forged by shared experience during World War II. This bond was later tested by different national priorities during the Cold War.

He was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to archives and scholarship in the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
