Godfrey Rathbone Benson, 1st Baron Charnwood (6 November 1864 – 3 February 1945) was an English author, academic, Liberal politician and philanthropist. He was educated at Winchester and Balliol College, Oxford, graduating in 1887 with a First in literae humaniores, and would become a Philosophy lecturer at Balliol. He was called to the bar by the Inner Temple in 1898. Benson was involved in Liberal politics and represented Woodstock in the House of Commons from 1892 to 1895. He served as Mayor of Lichfield between 1909 and 1911. In 1911 Benson was raised to the peerage as Baron Charnwood, of Castle Donington in the County of Leicester. Lord Charnwood was the author of many works, including two biographies, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. The appendix contains a facsimile letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Lady Delamere, published for the first time. This biography of Theodore Roosevelt is a rare blend of beautiful prose and profound historical insight. Lord Charnwood's biography of Abraham Lincoln is considered among the very best and most insightful available; this, Charnwood's biography of Roosevelt has a similar distinction. His authoritative biography of Roosevelt includes a detailed chronology of the American hero's life (supplied by Dr. Herman Hagedorn, director of the Roosevelt Memorial Association) and development with a focus on his major domestic and international accomplishments. Condition: good.
