While going through some of my wife's old family photo memorabilia recently I came across a yellowed negative/print envelope. Along with the Kodak promotional content, there was also the stamped name of my wife's uncle, Ralph, and a penciled notation, "Winston Churchill and Daughter". I put the negatives from the envelope in my scanner and, sure enough, there he was sans cigar, but sporting a homburg and bow tie. Something my wife said made me think that the picture had probably been made by my wife's father or uncle during Churchill's 1941 visit to the U.S. shortly after Pearl Harbor. However, there were some aspects of the picture that raised doubts about that time period. Churchill looked pretty young in the picture, the clothing styles looked earlier than '41, and the location didn't look like any place north of the Mason Dixon line in December. When I showed the prints to my brother-in-law last night he said he hadn't seen them before, but he did know some of the story. He was almost sure that the pictures were taken by his father, Lester, in the early '30s while he was attending Georgia Tech. I did a Google Search on "Churchill/Georgia Tech" and immediately turned up verification of my brother-in-law's recollection. The picture was made in 1932 when Churchill was invited by the university to speak at a parade of Navy and Army ROTC cadets. This was during the ten-year period when the famous statesman held no office and mostly devoted himself to speaking and writing. His speech on that day dealt with his now well-known concern for military preparedness, a topic he would revisit many times later with FDR. The negatives were 4.25 x 3.25 inches with numbering on the short side. I don't know what type of camera produced them. The uncle, Ralph, is now in his 90's and living in Florida; it is possible that he will be able to verify whether it was he or Lester who took the shots and with what kind of camera.
