Alexander Frederick Douglas Home, Baron Home of the Hirsel was a British Conservative politician who served as Prime Minister from October 1963 to October 1964. His reputation, however, rests more on his two spells as the UK's foreign minister than on his brief and uneventful premiership. Douglas-Home was born in Mayfair, London, the first of seven children of Lord Dunglass and his wife, the former Lady Lilian Lambton. The boy's first name was customarily abbreviated to Alec. Among the couple's younger children was the playwright William Douglas Home. In 1918 the 12th Earl of Home died, Dunglass succeeded him in the earldom, and the courtesy title passed to Alec Douglas Home, who was styled Lord Dunglass until 1951. After Eton, Dunglass went to Christ Church, Oxford, where he graduated with a third class honours BA degree in modern history in 1925. Home died on 9 October 1995 at the Hirsel, at the age of 92. He was buried in Lennel churchyard, Coldstream.
