Item description for Douglas-Home (British Prime Ministers of the 20th Century) (Life&Times) by Clare Beckett David Dutton...
Alec Douglas-Home the Conservative politician and prime minister from 1963 to 1964 had a complex career between the two Houses of Parliament. At the end of Macmillan's premiership, Lord Home emerged from secret consultations as leader of the party (Rab Butler had been the expected successor). He disclaimed his peerage, an option first available in that year, and became prime minister as Sir Alec Douglas-Home. The Conservatives lost the election of 1964, and in 1965 Douglas-Home resigned as leader of the party.
