Known best as a politician, (b1836-d1908) Campbell-Bannerman was first elected as Liberal MP for Stirling and then entered Gladstone's Cabinet as War Secretary in 1886. He was opposed to the Boer War and advocated comprehensive social reforms; in doing so he established himself as an important figure within his party. When the Conservative government resigned in 1905, Edward VII invited Campbell-Bannerman champion the cause (which he accepted) and in the 1906 General Election that followed the Liberal Party had a landslide victory.
