Ian Smith — Zimbabwean Politician born on April 08, 1919, died on November 20, 2007

Ian Douglas Smith, GCLM, ID was a politician, farmer and fighter pilot who served as Prime Minister of Rhodesia from 1964 to 1979. His country's first native-born premier, he led the predominantly white government that unilaterally declared independence from the United Kingdom in 1965, following prolonged dispute over the terms.
