Admin History/Bio
John G. Diefenbaker was born in Neustadt, Ontario on Sept. 18, 1895 to William and Mary. He joined the Canadian Officers' Training Corps and served as lieutenant with the 105th Saskatoon Fusiliers' Regiment between the years 1916-1917. Afterwards, he returned to school in Saskatchewan and became a lawyer starting up a practice in Wakaw.
He married Edna Brauer, then after her death, he remarried in 1953 to Olive E. Freeman Palmer. He had no children.
John G. Diefenbaker was elected to the house of Parliament in 1940 and won the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party in 1956. The Party won the 1957 election and John G. Diefenbaker became Canada's 13th Prime Minister. He was defeated in 1963 by the Liberals, and in 1967 Diefenbaker was replaced as the P.C. leader by Robert Stansfield.
During his reign as Prime Minister, he initiated the Canadian Bill of Rights, which was later adopted in 1960. John G. Diefenbaker died on Aug. 16, 1979.
