Max Aitken Beaverbrook

a.k.a. Max Aitken, 1st Lord Beaverbrook

Author Code: OMAB

Born: May 25, 1879 - Maple, Ontario, Canada

Died: Jun. 9, 1964 - Leatherhead, Surrey, England

Aitken's education was sparse and his only higher education was a brief time at the University of New Brunswick. An obviously gifted young man, he published his first newspaper when he was 13. He was employed as an office boy in a law firm and subsequently entered the Royal Securities Corporation as a minor shareholder and general manager. When his mentor John F. Stairs died, Aitken acquired control of the company. In 1909, he founded the Calgary Power Company. In 1910, after having acquired many cement plants in the region, Aitken sold out and moved to England. He would later in 1919 dispose of his interest in Royal Securities. In England, Aitken became involved in politics and was elected Unionist MP for Ashton-under-Lyne. In 1911, Aitken was knighted, and subsequently became a peer as Lord Bevaerbrook in 1917. He built a newspaper empire that included the London Evening Standard and The Daily Express. During the First World War he created the Canadian War Records Office in London and founded the Canadian War Memorial Fund. In 1916, he published Canada in Flanders following visits to the Western Front. Over the years Beaverbrook published numerous historical works and held a variety of political posts including Minister of Information and, during the Second World War, Minister of Aircraft Production, Minister of Supply and Minister of War Production. From 1943 to 1945, he was the Lord Privy Seal. After the war, Beaverbrook dedicated his time to the University of New Brunswick where he served as chancellor and its benefactor. His works include Success (1922), Politicians and the Press (1925), Politicians and the War (1928-32), The Resources of the British Empire (1934), Spirit of the Soviet Union (1942), Men and Power, 1917-1918 (1956), My Early Life (1962), The Divine Propagandist (1962) and The Decline and Fall of Lloyd George (1962).
