Herbert Lee

Majority Leader Herbert Lee.

Herbert Lee was Majority Leader of the Liberal Party caucus in the Nineteenth Grand Council from February 1933 to July 1934. Lee was a supporter of Governor-General Douglas Watson's military buildup. When public opinion turned against Watson's arms program in July 1934, Lee was deposed by the Liberal caucus on the 24th and replaced by Charles Dorsey, an opponent of the program.

Although Sobel does not say so, it is likely that Watson chose Lee to serve as Council President after that office was created by the Reform Bill of 1936.
