Neville Chamberlain

I’ve always been interested in history, and am very proud to be the great-grandson of Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister who declared war on Germany in 1939. He was also an authority on birds and butterflies, and a great fly fisherman. His father, Joseph Chamberlain, my great- great-grandfather, a politician, businessman and statesman, was the founder of Birmingham University. I was really impressed, when I visited Birmingham, to see the university clock tower named ‘Old Joe’ after him, and the special collection of Chamberlain family papers kept there.
