Churchill, who lived at 28 Hyde Park Gate with his wife baroness Spencer-Churchill, died in the home on Jan. 24, 1965. He served as the prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, and again, from 1951, to 1955. Also a notable writer, as well an artist and officer in the British army, Churchill won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1953. In 1963, he became the first of eight others to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.
