Britannica Concise

Canadian prime minister (1930-35). Born in Hopewell, New Brunswick, he served in the legislatures of the Northwest Territories and Alberta, and in the Canadian House of Commons (1911). He was named director general of national service (1916) and later minister of justice (1921). He became head of the Conservative Party in 1927 and, having promised relief from the Great Depression, prime minister in 1930. He underestimated the severity of the crisis, and his measures were superficial. He was defeated by the Liberals and W. L. M. King. In 1939 he retired to England, where he was made a viscount in 1941.
