In January 1942, after finishing his business in the Arcadia Conference, Winston Churchill took a short vacation at a beachfront home of Edward Stettinius located in Hillsboro Beach (near Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderale), Florida. This resulted in a famous image of Churchill coming out of the water from an ocean swim which he didn't much care for. This visit is listed in the International Churchill Society's very detailed timeline of Churchill's life. There are claims that FDR secretly visited Churchill in Florida during this visit, including dining together at a nearby locally famous restaurant called Cap's Place (who tout this alleged visit to this day). Variants of the story claim the join visit occurred in 1941 before the US entered the war. Examples of first person claims reported by local newspapers of the joint visit at an unspecified date can be found in the Fort Lauderdale Daily News issues on 6 Oct 1958 & 26 Dec 1950. On the other hand, War in Paradise: Stories of World War II in Florida by Eliot Kleinberg says the story is a myth; FDR and Churchill both vacationed in South Florida, but never at the same time. I suspect this story be a mistake of human memory: individuals met Churchill and Roosevelt in the same place during the same time period and years later in retrospect the memories blended together that so two true but separate encounters became one. Any FDR or Churchill buffs know more about this subject? Anyone have a good FDR or Churchill biography handy they can check to see if this claim is addressed? If so, what sources are cited for or against this claim?
