New eResource: Churchill Archive

Winston Churchill shaking hands in front of mapWinston Churchill was a dominant figure in 19th and 20th centuries, whose impact reached far outside of British politics into global economics, international conflict and even impacted on religious studies. The Bodleian Libraries have recently gained access to the Churchill Archive which will be of benefit to a range of subjects across the Social Sciences.

The Churchill Archive, now available on SOLO, includes more than 800,000 pages of original documents, produced between 1874 and 1965, ranging from Winston S. Churchill’s personal correspondence to his official exchanges with kings, presidents, politicians, and military leaders. You can search the collection by topic, by person, by place or by period.

So those doing Women’s Studies can pop straight to “Churchill and Women” whereas those who want to know about Churchill’s thoughts on the Middle East should search that section under places.

The handy “My Archive” tool allows you to create your own mini archive of useful documents and saved searches.
