The British statesman, Arthur Henderson (1863–1935), was an architect of the Labour Party and served as foreign secretary from 1929 to 1931 in Ramsay MacDonald’s Labour Government. Born in Glasgow, his father died when he was just ten, and with his mother remarrying, the family moved to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where Arthur found work in the Robert Stephenson locomotive factory and later as an iron founder.
