Lord Halifax (1881-1959) was a British Conservative politician who served as Foreign Secretary from 1938 to 1940.

Like Neville Chamberlain, his name is associated with the policy of appeasement in relation to Hitler and Nazi Germany.

During the Second World War, he served as British Ambassador in Washington.
