Sir Charles Kerruish OBE LLD CP MLC (July 23, 1917 [1] – August 2, 2003 [2]) was perhaps the most well known Manx politician. He was the Speaker of the House of Keys from 1962 to 1990, making him the longest serving Speaker in any Parliament in the Commonwealth, and first President of Tynwald. He was also the first Chairman of the Executive Council, the forerunner of the present Chief Minister of the Isle of Man, from 1961 to 1967. This made him the first Manx person to fulfil an executive role on the Isle of Man. Previously the Lieutenant Governor had exercised all executive power. He was a keen supporter of Scouting on the Isle of Man, often offering his own lands for camping.
