Winston is an Outer Party member, which is basically this story's version of a middle class. As a records editor at the Ministry of Truth, his job is to literally rewrite history, revising old newspaper articles so they're in line with the Party's current vision of the truth. The original articles are tossed in an incinerator, never to be seen again. We wonder what the Party would be so worried about people learning that they'd go to this length to cover their tracks, but then again, freedom of the press isn't exactly the norm in a dystopian society.
Churchill has been extremely successful in various scientific competitions, such as APEGA Science Olympics, SET Challenge, and Science Fair. As a competitor in the Calgary Youth Science Fair , Sir Winston Churchill High School has been awarded the BP High School Aggregate Award on consecutive occasions, recognizing it as the top school in Calgary at the event. Many Churchill alumni have been selected to represent Alberta at the Canada-Wide Science Fair — where numerous individuals have received top honours. Notable examples of these alumni include Emily Gubski, Sunand Kannapan, Tahmid Khan, and Tim Wu ; where some of these students have received extensive nationwide media coverage for their research.  
The next day, Julia surreptitiously hands Winston a note confessing her love for him. Winston and Julia begin an affair after Winston realizes she shares his loathing of the Party, first meeting in the country, and eventually in a rented room at the top of the antiques shop where Winston purchased the diary, which is owned by the seemingly kindly Mr. Charrington. They believe that the shop is safe, as the room has no telescreen. During his affair with Julia, Winston remembers the death of his family; during the civil war of the 1950's, Winston stole rationed chocolate from his malnourished infant sister and his mother, and would return home to discover that they had disappeared. He also recounts his terse relationship with his ex-wife Katharine, whom he was forced to have sex with and despised to such an extent that he considered pushing her off a cliff during a nature walk. Winston also interacts with his colleague Syme, who is writing a dictionary for a revised version of the English language called Newspeak . After Syme insightfully reveals that the true purpose of Newspeak is to reduce the capacity of human thought, Winston speculates that he will be vaporized. He is later proven correct when Syme disappears without a trace, and no one acknowledges his absence.
