Green Foundation Lectureship 

Winston Churchill delivers the Iron Curtain speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. 

The Green Foundation Lectureship was established in 1936 as a memorial to John Findley Green, an attorney in St. Louis who graduated from Westminster in 1884. The foundation provides for lectures designed to promote understanding of economic and social problems of international concern. It further provides that "the speaker shall be a person of international reputation."

Although the most famous Green Lecture on campus is the “Iron Curtain” speech delivered by Sir Winston Churchill in 1946, other notable lectures have included luminaries such as Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev and J.C. Penney.
