Hillsdale & Statesmanship
The study of statesmanship is central to the teaching mission of Hillsdale College, and the classics teach that the art can be best understood by studying those who have a reputation for it.

Churchill & Hillsdale
Hillsdale College will promote a proper account of this record by combining the College’s educational expertise with its work both as publisher of Churchill’s Official Biography and as the repository of the Martin Gilbert papers.
When King Peter II of Yugoslavia wanted to marry Princess Alexandra of Greece, Churchill defended the marriage but the Foreign Office had a problem with it. Although in this case Churchill won, Peter II was deposed by Tito’s Communist assembly in 1945.
None of the leading Churchill misquotes seems to be famous in German. In our language, the best known one is the supposed quip when Churchill was asked for his recipe for a long life: “First of all: no sports!” Another attributed to Churchill is “I believe only such statistics that I have forged myself.”
