UVM professor looks at Churchill-Roosevelt WWII relationship

A free lecture presented by Vermont Humanities Council

Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. — RUTLAND — UVM History Professor Emeritus Mark Stoler will examine the important personal relationship between Britain’s Prime Minister and America’s President during their World War II alliance in a talk at Rutland Free Library on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. His talk, “Churchill and Roosevelt: the Personal Element in Their Partnership,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.

During World War II, Great Britain and the United States fought the Axis Powers of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan as close allies. An important component of their alliance was the personal relationship that existed between British Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In his talk, Stoler will examine the origins and development of that personal relationship.

Mark A. Stoler, Ph.D., is professor emeritus at the University of Vermont and co-editor of “The Marshall Papers.” Dr. Stoler is a distinguished military and diplomatic historian and author of numerous books, including the acclaimed biography of Marshall, “George C. Marshall: Soldier-Statesman of the American Century.”

The Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays series is held on the first Wednesday of every month from October through May in nine communities statewide, featuring speakers of national and regional renown. Talks in Rutland are held at Rutland Free Library unless otherwise noted. All First Wednesdays talks are free and open to the public.
