This is an historical biography of Dr T.J. Macnamara, the first ex-elementary teacher to win a government post. Colleague and close friend of Lloyd George, and praised by Winston Churchill, Macnamara was an educationist, journalist and Cabinet Minister. This study of his life and career makes a contribution to educational history as well as to the history of the Liberal Party, the National Union of Teachers (NUT), and British political history generally. Dr Macnamara was a member of the Executive of the NUT for 17 years (President 1896-97); member of the London School Board, 1894-1904; editor of the "Schoolmaster", 1892-1907; Member of Parliament, 1900-24; Parliamentary Secretary to the Local Government Board, 1907-08; Parliamentary and Financial Secretary to the Admiralty, 1908-20; and Minister of Labour, 1920-22. Details of Macnamara's pre-Parliamentary career are provided and, alongside the biographical account, the book deals with a range of major issues with which Macnamara was involved.
