J. Callaghan

James Callaghan grew up on Scottie Road in Liverpool and had a hard childhood. He was one of eleven children, seven of whom died either at birth or in early infancy: he was the second oldest of the four who survived. His earlier hardships and lack of education never kept him back, however, and he took evening university courses and became a personnel officer. He remained sharp and quick-witted until his death in 2001 at the age of 91.
