French politician André Tardieu

André Tardieu (September 22, 1876 at Paris, France - September 15, 1945 at Menton) was three-time Prime Minister of France (November 3, 1929 - February 17, 1930; March 2 - December 4, 1930; February 20 - May 10, 1932) and a dominant figure of French political life from 1929-1932.

He served in the Légion d'honneur during World War I, and served as Georges Clemenceau's lieutenant during the Paris Peace Conference, 1919 and as Commissioner for Franco-American War Cooperation. He was minister of the liberated regions of Alsace and Lorraine after the war.

Though generally considered a conservative, on becoming prime minister in 1929, he introduced a program of welfare measures, including public works, social insurance, and free secondary schooling, as well as encouraging modern techniques in industry. His later political activity was largely concerned with containing and responding to German expansion.
