CHURCHILL, WINSTON L.S., SIR, FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, HENRY H. ARNOLD, et al.
MENU FROM THE ATLANTIC CONFERENCE DINNER, SIGNED BY ALL GUESTS.
Printed card signed by WINSTON S. CHURCHILL, FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, HENRY H. ARNOLD, GEORGE C. MARSHALL, HAROLD R. STARK, and others, 7 x 9 inch bifoliate card, Ship Harbor, Newfoundland, August 9, 1941, containing the menu and list of those present for a dinner given by President Roosevelt in Churchill's honor, fine.

This menu dates from the first day of the three-day Atlantic Conference. Churchill and Roosevelt arranged this conference, the first of their wartime conferences, before the U.S. had officially entered the war. During the meeting, the two hammered out the "Atlantic Charter," which outlined a vision for a postwar world, including the promise by both countries not to seek territorial gains and to pursue global economic cooperation and advancement of social welfare. The two also discussed war strategy and agreed to continue to hold conferences for the duration of the war.
Provenance: The Estate of General H.H. "Hap" Arnold.
See illustration.
