David LLoyd George

Author Code: EDLG

Born: Jan. 17, 1863 - Chorlton-on-Medlock, Manchester, England

Died: Mar. 26, 1945 - TyNewydd, Wales

Educated at a local scholl and by tutors, George was apprenticed to a firm of solicitors in Porthmadog. In 1884, he was admitted to the bar and set up a law practice with the help of his uncle. The firm was very successful and George became activ e in politics, campaigning for the Liberal Party. He married Margaret Owen in 1888. He was elected Alderman on the Carnarvon County Council in 1889 and the following year was elected an MP for Carnarvon Boroughs. He was against the Boer War and the Education Act in 1902 and gained support inParliament during those years. In 1906, he became the President of the Board of Trade in the cabinet of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman. Under Asquith, he was named Chancellor of the Exchequer which he held until 1915 when he was appointed Minister of Munitions in spite of his anti-war leanings. In 1916, he succeeded Lord Kitchner as Secretary of State for War and constantly ran into conflicts with the military on the execution of the war. Following the resignation of Asquith in 1916, Lloyd George was elected Prime Minister and proved an able manager of the war. After victory in November 1918, George's reputation was solid and he remained PM throughout the Versailles Treaty Conference and postwar social reform. His popularity began to wane when he supported the Government of Ireland Act of 1920, which partitioned Ireland into North and South and this was followed in 1922 by accusations of selling political awards for cash. The Coalition fell apart and the Conservatives came to power in 1924, having attracted several former Liberal members, such as Winston Churchill. Lloyd George remained head of the reduced Liberal Party and an MP until his death in 1945. He was awarded numerous honorary degrees during his life and was made an Earl, but died before he could take his seat in the House of Lords. George's writings consist mainly of political pamphlets and printed speeches.
