Herbert W. Greenfield (November 25, 1869 – August 23, 1949) was a Canadian politician who served as the fourth Premier of Alberta from 1921 until 1925. Born in Winchester, Hampshire, in England, he immigrated to Canada in his late twenties, settling first in Ontario and then in Alberta, where he farmed. He soon became involved in the United Farmers of Alberta (UFA), a farmers' lobby organization that was in the process of becoming a political party, and was elected as the organization's vice president. Greenfield did not run in the 1921 provincial election, the first provincial general election in which the UFA fielded candidates, but when the UFA won a majority in the Legislature in that election he was chosen by the UFA caucus to serve as Premier.

  • Herbert W. Greenfield (November 25, 1869 – August 23, 1949) was a Canadian politician who served as the fourth Premier of Alberta from 1921 until 1925. Born in Winchester, Hampshire, in England, he immigrated to Canada in his late twenties, settling first in Ontario and then in Alberta, where he farmed. He soon became involved in the United Farmers of Alberta (UFA), a farmers' lobby organization that was in the process of becoming a political party, and was elected as the organization's vice president. Greenfield did not run in the 1921 provincial election, the first provincial general election in which the UFA fielded candidates, but when the UFA won a majority in the Legislature in that election he was chosen by the UFA caucus to serve as Premier. Like most of the UFA caucus, Greenfield had no experience in government and he struggled in the position. He relied extensively on his Attorney General, John E. Brownlee, for counsel on policy and strategy. He was unable to control his caucus, which did not generally believe in party discipline, and his government almost lost several votes in the Legislature despite its majority. He was unable to effectively address the problems facing farmers (including drought and low grain prices), bitter labour disputes in the coal industry, or the pronounced divisions in public opinion that had sprung up around prohibition (which his government ended). Despite this, his time as Premier saw the elimination of the provincial deficit, substantial progress in negotiating the transfer of natural resource rights from the federal government, and the creation of the Alberta Wheat Pool. He also named Irene Parlby as the province's first female cabinet minister. By 1924, many UFA Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) wanted to see Greenfield leave office, both because they were frustrated with his failings and because they thought it likely that a Greenfield-led government would be defeated in the next election. Their first attempt to replace him failed when Brownlee, their intended replacement, refused to have anything to do with the plan, but a second attempt, in 1925, was successful when Brownlee agreed to take office if Greenfield personally requested that he do so. Greenfield had not wanted the job in the first place, and agreed to resign in Brownlee's favour. After his retirement from politics, Greenfield represented Alberta in London, England for several years before returning to Canada to work in the oil and gas industry. He died in 1949 at the age of 79. (en)

  • Herbert Greenfield (Winchester, Engeland 25 november 1869 - Calgary 23 augustus 1949) was een Canadees politicus en de vierde premier van Alberta van 1921 tot 1925. Greenfield groeide op in Engeland en genoot daar ook onderwijs vooraleer hij in 1892 naar Canada emigreerde. Hij vestigde zich uiteindelijk in 1906 in Alberta waar hij een succesvol boerenbedrijf oprichtte. Politiek gezien behoorde Greenfield eerst tot de Liberale Partij maar al snel sloot hij zich aan bij de United Farmers of Alberta waar hij het tot vicepresident bracht. Nadat de UFA onverwachts de provinciale verkiezingen van 1921 wonnen werd Henry Wise Wood, president van de UFA gevraagd een regering te vormen. Deze weigerde echter waarna Greenfield werd overgehaald om de taak op zich te nemen. Op 13 augustus 1921 volgde hij dan ook de uittredende premier Charles Stewart op. Gedurende Greenfields termijn als premier werden er verbeteringen doorgevoerd in het gezondheisstelsel en het onderwijs van Alberta en werd tevens de infrastructuur verbeterd. Een groeiende split tussen de UFA leden en de regering zorgde er echter voor dat Greenfield op 23 november 1925 aftrad als premier van Alberta. Na zijn politieke carrière werd Greenfield actief in de bloeiende olieindustrie van Alberta. Hij werd onder andere president van de Alberta Petroleum Association. (nl)
  • Herbert W. Greenfield (25 de novembro de 1869 - 23 de agosto de 1949) foi um político canadense que serviu como o quarto primeiro-ministro de Alberta de 1921 a 1925. Nascido em Winchester, Hampshire, na Inglaterra, emigrou para o Canadá com pouco mais de vinte anos de idade, estabelecendo-se primeiro em Ontário e depois em Alberta, onde se tornou fazendeiro. Ele logo se envolveu no United Farmers of Alberta (UFA), uma organização de defesa dos agricultores locais, que estava em vias de se tornar um partido político, tornando-se vice-presidente da entidade. Embora ele não tenha se candidatado na eleição provincial de 1921, a primeira na qual a UFA apresentou candidatos, Greenfield foi a eventual escolha do partido para servir como o primeiro-ministro quando a UFA conquistou a maioria dos assentos naquele ano. Como a maioria dos caucus da UFA, Greenfield não tinha nenhuma experiência no governo e lutou na posição. Ele se baseou amplamente em seu procurador-geral, John Edward Brownlee, para aconselhamento sobre a política e estratégia. Ele foi incapaz de controlar sua bancada, que em geral não acredita em disciplina do partido e seu governo perdeu vários votos no Legislativo, apesar da sua maioria nominal. Ele foi incapaz de enfrentar eficazmente os problemas enfrentados pelos agricultores (incluindo a seca e os preços dos grãos baixo), disputas trabalhistas amargo no carvão , indústria ou as divisões acentuadas na opinião pública que surgiram em torno de proibição (que terminou seu governo). Apesar disso, seu tempo como o premier viu a eventual eliminação do déficit provincial, progressos substanciais nas negociações de transferência dos direitos de recursos naturais por parte do governo federal, e a criação do Pool de trigo Alberta. Ele também nomeou Irene Parlby como chefe de gabinete da província; a primeira mulher a ocupar esta função. (pt)
