Churchill Ethnicity

Worth recalling that the OTHER W. Churchill was in fact part Indian, via his

American mother, Jenny. I believe the proportion was one-64th.

Among other notable conservatives of part-Indian ancestry, let us not forget

Calvin Coolidge. He held a dim childhood memory of being taken to visit his

half-Iroquoi great-grandmother (I think this is right). She was smoking a

pipe.
