    (June 12, 1897-January 14, 1977)
    Conservative Party member of the House of Commons (1923-1926)
    Parliamentary Secretary to Austen Chamberlain (1926-1929)
    Under-Secretary of the British Foreign Affairs office (1931-1935)

    Leader of the House of Commons (1942-1945)
    Appointed Prime Minister after Winston Churchill's retirement (1955-1956)
    Served in World War I
    He was only 38 when he became Foreign Secretary.
    He negotiated with the Soviets for an 'interim peace' in Vietnam (1954).
    His use of troops during Egypt's attempt to nationalize the Suez Canal, along with France and Israel, strained relations with the United States and caused protest in the Soviet Union.
    In response to domestic criticism, he stated: 'We are in an armed conflict; that is the phrase I have used. There has been no declaration of war.'
    As a result of the controversy, he resigned, only 1 year and 279 days into his term.
    He was one of the most outstanding members within the failed League of Nations, arranging for 50 nations to declare sanctions on Italy after their invasion of Abyssinia.
    He saw World War II coming and was one of the only members of Neville Chamberlain's government that tried to stop the dangerous appeasement policy.
    He resigned as Secretary of State for Foreign affairs in disgust after Chamberlain made the Munich Pact with the Axis Powers and began a policy of appeasement (1938).
    After Chamberlain's resignation, he regained a spot in the wartime coalition government as Foreign Secretary.
    Churchill often said that if he was to die during the course of the war, he would want Eden to replace him.
    He became Prime Minister after Churchill's retirement (April 1955).
