WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Are you intrigued by Winston Churchill as a public figure? Interested in World War II history? Fascinated by the day-to-day of political leadership? Good at deciphering hard-to-read handwriting?

Help us transcribe the events from Churchill's daily planner, used from September 1939 to June 1945. Transcribe just one day or as many as you like.

The calendars were a gift to the George Washington University Libraries from The Churchill Centre.
