Third Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal
Birth: Jun. 14, 1891
Death: Feb. 22, 1959

British Statesman. Born Donald Sterling Palmer Howard, he was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge. He joined the Third Hussars in August 1913, and served with them during the First World War, in which he reached the rank of Captain and was awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre. In 1922, he was elected to the House of Commons for the seat of North Cumberland; however, on his mother's death in 1926, he was elevated to the House of Lords. From 1934 to 1939, he served as the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for War. During the Second World War, he served with the Second Battalion of the London Scottish Regiment, including a period in Washington as a Military Liaison Officer, for which he received the United States Legion of Merit and Bronze Star. He retired from the Army in 1945, with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
