Quintin McGarel Hogg, Baron Hailsham of St Marylebone, KG, CH, PC, QC (9 October 1907 – 12 October 2001), formerly 2nd Viscount Hailsham (1950–1963), was a British politician who was known for the longevity of his career, the vigour with which he campaigned for the Conservative Party, and the influence wielded by his political writing. He was considered for the leadership of his party (and becoming Prime Minister) in 1963, and served for more than a decade in the high post formerly held by his father, that of Lord Chancellor.

Background

Born in London, Hogg was the son of Douglas Hogg, 1st Viscount Hailsham, who was Lord Chancellor under Stanley Baldwin, and grandson of another Quintin Hogg, a merchant, philanthropist, and educational reformer. He attended Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford, where he was President of the Oxford University Conservative Association and the Oxford Union. He became a Prize Fellow of All Souls in 1931. Although he had originally read classics, he won his prize fellowship in law and was called to the bar in 1932. His favourite hobby was mountain-climbing, and his ankles were broken so many times that in old age he was only able to walk with two canes.[citation needed]
