Anthony Eden, 1949

Anthony Eden was born on this day, June 12, in 1897. He became Prime Minister of Great Britain after Winston Churchill‘s resignation in 1955.

Karsh photographed The Right Honorable Anthony Eden as British Foreign Secretary in 1943 with Canada’s Prime Minister W. L. Mackenzie King. Eden sat again for LIFE magazine in 1945, and once more in 1949 when he was leader of the opposition for the Conservative Party.
