Arthur Meighen was a Canadian lawyer and politician. He served two terms as the Conservative ninth Prime Minister of Canada: from July 10, 1920 to December 29, 1921; and from June 29, 1926 to September 25, 1926. He was the first Prime Minister born after Confederation, and the only one to represent a riding in Manitoba. Both of his terms of office were brief. Meighen later served for a decade in the Senate of Canada, and failed in a political comeback attempt in 1941-42, after which he returned to the practice of law. Glassford concludes, "On any list of Canadian prime ministers ranked according to their achievements while in office, Arthur Meighen would not place very high.
