J. E. Purdy. Winston Churchill, 1900
This photograph was taken in Boston during Churchill's lecture tour about the Boer War. On this leg of his journey he met the then-popular American writer Winston Churchill, author of the recently published historical novel, Richard Carvel. An illustrated account of their meeting appeared on the front page of the Boston Herald. In earlier correspondence, the British Churchill had promised his namesake that he would henceforth publish under the name "Winston Spencer Churchill" to avoid confusion.
