Fulton, Missouri’s Westminster College invited Winston Churchill to speak in March, 1946--not long after the British prime minister, who guided England through World War II, was voted out of office. Townspeople welcomed Churchill and President Harry Truman with a parade. And 2,700 of them gathered in the college gym and heard Churchill declare, “An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent.” This look back--75 years later--at one of the Cold War’s most iconic speeches was a joint production of American History TV and C-SPAN’s Washington Journal. The guest was Timothy Riley, Fulton’s National Churchill Museum director and chief curator. close
