Recollections of Churchill's Visit to MIT for the Mid-Century Convocation of 1949 (1999)

For its 1949 Mid-Century Convocation MIT invited Winston Churchill to give the keynote address in front of a crowd of thousands - an historic event for MIT and for the international community. This short video produced in 1999 includes excerpts of Churchill's rousing speech interspersed with historical photographs from the MIT Museum collections and personal reminiscences from MIT participants such as Tom Toohy, President of the Senior Class of 1949 and chaperone for the Churchills during their MIT visit.
