You're very close, Brothah Kashmir...but no.

This is Chamberlain, with his "friend"...another criminal:



Chamberlain was a pipe smoker, but photos of him with a pipe are rare. Here's one:

Chamberlain's enablement of Hitler's murderous rampage into Austria and Czechoslovakia in 1938 would easily have qualified him for the firing squad under Mosaic law (an eye for an eye). His refusal to acknowledge the crimes Hitler had been committing extended back before he became Prime Minister, when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, and refused any budget request that included rearmament...even to match Hitler's illegal rearmament, let alone exceed it.

The other pipe smoker (depicted earlier) was no less criminally irresponsible than Chamberlain (another hint). He had pledged (on the record, in the House of Commons), never to let Germany's air force surpass that of Great Britain. In March 1935 he insisted that the RAF had a superiority of 50% over the Luftwaffe. He lied. At the time he made that pledge, the Luftwaffe already surpassed the RAF by a factor of at least three.

Neither one of them were men with whom I would have enjoyed sharing a bowl. No

Close enough. It was Stanley Baldwin, Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1924-1929, and again from 1935-1937, although he actually became de facto Prime Minister in 1931 when Ramsay MacDonald (Labour Party...code for "socialist") was nominally the P.M., but was actually Baldwin's puppet. Baldwin was Chamberlain's immediate predecessor at 10 Downing Street.

Baldwin was a staunch advocate of appeasement. Perhaps his most notorious accomplishment was allowing Hitler to remilitarize the Rhineland—a Nazi bluff that easily could have been stopped with virtually no bloodshed. Had the Brits (...and the French, who were equally complicit in their cowardice in the name of "peace") done so, Hitler (according to his own generals' testimony after WW 2) would have been toppled from power then and there, and the war likely never would have happened.

The "Earl" thing was a title after his retirement, when the king named him Earl Baldwin of Bewdley and Viscount of Corvedale. The Brits used to do that with their famous retired political hacks. I dunno whether they still do...perhaps one of our Brit brethren can enlighten us on that point.

Oh...and the weedular blend associated with Mr. Baldwin is Presbyterian Mixture. One can't be sure it's the same now as it was then, but if so, at least he had good taste in pipeweed.

Yup...I know it well—a superb work. In fact, I plan to read it again soon.

I'm currently devouring William Manchester's The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill...my second time for the first two volumes, which is why much of this stuff is fresh in my mind. The third and final volume (completed by Paul Reid at the request of his mentor, Mr. Manchester, who was unable to finish the work before his death) wasn't published until 2012. November. So, I'm going back to the beginning to get the full flavor of the work before I dive into Volume 3 for the first time.

I swear...the doggone book reads like a novel, and it's all the more gripping because it's actual history. It whitewashes nothing, revealing Churchill and his contemporaries with all their warts, as well as their more positive attributes. The author's research is unimpeachable. In fact, in Volume 2 (Alone 1932-1940) he often cites William L. Shirer, who was a correspondent for Universal News Service and CBS in the prewar years. and remained a CBS correspondent throughout the war.

I must say that it is always a pleasure to find a weed brothah who appreciates the value and importance of history. As George Santayana wrote, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Alas, I haven't found any evidence that Santayana was a pipe smoker.

Yo Vito - You're right about William L. Shirer, being a correspondent for Universal News Service and CBS in the prewar years. and remaining a CBS correspondent throughout the war. He was a protoge of Edward R. Murrow. And - get this - was a pipe smoker extraordinaire! Hence his inclusion on this thread is indeed fortuitous. Happy reading bro.

Wow! Seven hundred plus hits to this thread. Shows there's some interest in famous pipe smokers of the past. I'm impressed. It signifies that as pipe smokers were are cognizant of those who came before us. I don't know if folks want to continue the thread or not. I'll leave that up to you. Most of you are probably familiar with Joseph Cruse Johnson from Memphis, TN. He is the originator of the Famous Pipe Smokers web site. I've included the link below. Highly recommended and worth your while.

Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ2_4_w9zQM (sorry, I don't know how to embed youTube vids). I'm the obnoxious kid in orange turtle neck at 1:18. See also at 1:44, she is smoking a pipe.

Yeah, I know that one. It's OK. But there's no information. Just a snap and a name. Joseph Cruse Johnson on the other hand is far more extensive. He's done research to pull together the bios on 100s of famous pipe smokers, why the smoked a pipe, etc. Really well worth reading if you enjoy the historical aspects of pipe smoking.

Here's his blurb:

"I originally started this blog as a pipe club while I was attending college in Blue Mountain, MS. I was doing research on famous pipe smokers to promote more awareness of all the pipe smokers out there in the world and in doing so found a way to show the world that pipe smoking is not just for old retired men but for doctors, lawyers, scientists, ministers, politicians, sports figures, and even those wonder pipe smoking women. I became interested in pipes as a young boy when I saw Melvyn Douglas and Cary Grant smoking pipes in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Ten years later when I turned 18 years old I went to the local tobacco store and bought three pipes all three made by Savinelli, which I still have to this day, and bought two pounds of different blends of tobacco. Almost ten years later and those three pipes have turned into over a hundred pipes, and yes I do smoke all them, I rotate them out every day and some two or three times a day depending on how much I smoke them. My goal for this blog was to show people of all different colors, religions, and ages that pipe smoking is not prejudiced".
