İngilizce Biyografiler / Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman Biography (1836 - 1908)
orig. Henry Campbell (born Sept. 7, 1836, Glasgow, Scot.âdied April 22, 1908, London, Eng.) British politician. A member of the House of Commons from 1868, he was elected leader of the Liberal Party in 1899 and served as prime minister (1905â08). His popularity unified his badly divided party. Though much of his legislative program was nullified by the House of Lords, he obtained approval of the Trades Disputes Act of 1906. He took the lead in granting self-government to the Transvaal and the Orange River Colony, thereby securing the Boers' loyalty to the British Empire.
