Kay Murphy Halle was an American writer, journalist, socialite and political campaigner. An intimate Churchill family friend, regular visitor to Chartwell, and favourite of Sir Winston's, she spent more than 30 years in frequent company with him. She is credited with persuading Congress to award Churchill honorary U.S. citizenship, an accolade that he considered his most prized public tribute. Kay Halle died in 1997 aged 93.
