Churchill was a longstanding member of the Institute of Journalists. His association with the Institute started in 1900 when he was writing for the Morning Chronicle. He went on to write for most of the Fleet Street press during the course of his career, and particularly for his friend Lord Beaverbrook’s Daily Express and Evening Standard.

A number of documents relating to Sir Winston’s membership of the Institute of Journalists are currently held at the Churchill Archives Centre in Cambridge. These include his IoJ membership certificates and correspondence between Churchill and the Institute’s head office.
