Program for an Aug. 15, 1951 Presentation of the Honorary Freedom of the Borough of Deal, Kent, England, to former Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the Odeon Theatre. Crawshay-Williams (1879-1962), the son of a Welsh politician, was Member of Parliament for Leicester from 1910 to 1913, when he resigned after being named in a divorce case brought by another M.

Before joining Parliament, he wrote the book Across Persia (1907), about an eight-month journey that he took across Iran. Later in life, he took up the pen in earnest and became an author, playwright, screenwright and poet, with writing credits on 3 movies during the early 1930s, the play Fascination, the books Night in the Hotel, Simple Story: An Accidental Autobiography and Leaves from an Officer's Notebooks, as well as Songs on Service, a collection of poetry.
