Arthur Henderson
FameRank: 5

"Arthur Henderson" Privy Council of the United Kingdom/PC was a British people/British iron moulder and Labour Party (UK)/Labour politician. He was the first Labour Cabinet of the United Kingdom/cabinet minister, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1934 and, uniquely, served three separate terms as Leader of the Labour Party (UK)/Labour Party in three different decades. He was popular among his colleagues, who called him "Uncle Arthur" in acknowledgement of his integrity, his devotion to the cause and his imperturbability. He was a transitional figure whose policies were, at first, close to those of the Liberal Party, and the trades unions rejected his emphasis on arbitration and conciliation, and thwarted his goal of unifying the Labour Party and the trades unions.
