Herbert Stanley Morrison (1888 - 1965) was a British Labour politician. He rose to prominence in the party during the 1930s, and in 1940 was made the first Minister of Supply by Winston Churchill. Shortly afterwards, he succeeded John Anderson as Home Secretary. His local experience was especially useful during the Blitz.
He was responsible for a number of unpopular decisions, such as banning the pro-soviet Daily Worker newspaper. However, he was vindicated by British victory, and the Morrison shelter was named after him.
