The Green Foundation Lecture was established from a generous gift by Eleanor I. Green in 1937 to honor the memory of her husband, John Findley Green, a St. Louis attorney who graduated from Westminster in 1884 and served on the Westminster Board of Trustees for 27 years.   

This important lecture series has brought an impressive procession of illustrious world leaders to Westminster to deliver significant addresses. Sir Winston Churchill delivered his “Sinews of Peace” speech, more commonly known as the “Iron Curtain” speech, as a part of the lecture series in 1946. 

Some of the other prestigious Green Foundation lecturers in Westminster’s history are British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, U.S.S.R. President Mikhail Gorbachev, President of Poland Lech Walesa, President Harry S. Truman, President Gerald Ford, Vice President George H. W. Bush, and Secretary of State and Treasury James A. Baker.
