Profile: Sir Henry Tucker

Sir Henry Tucker became Bermuda's first Government leader when he was elected on May 22, 1968 in the first election held under a new Constitution and a two-party system.

Sir Henry, who was a founder of the United Bermuda Party, was a dominant figure in business and politics for three decades prior to that and he piloted the bill in Parliament that gave women the right to vote.

As general manager of the Bank of Bermuda, he oversaw its transformation from local bank to international financial institution and also helped lay the foundation for international business.

He was knighted in 1961 and again in 1972 in recognition of his work for the community.
