Fulbright-Robertson Visiting Chair of British History 


The Visiting Chair of British History was established at Westminster College in 1991 to commemorate its founder, Rev. Dr. William Robertson, and the College’s connection with the British statesman Winston Churchill.

The Rev. Robertson’s granddaughter, Mrs. Hermann, through the Grover Hermann Foundation, helped found the Chair, and with the help of the US-UK Fulbright Commission in London, the Fulbright-Robertson Chair has brought a different visiting professor of British History from the United Kingdom every year.

Holders of the Chair have hailed from all four corners of the United Kingdom: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
