Comments: Field Marshall Jan Christiaan Smuts served as the Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa from 1919-1924 and again from 1939-1948. He advocated for racial segregation early in his tenure, but changed his views after the Fagan Commission findings. He lost his seat in 1948 to hard-line nationalists who institutionalized apartheid. Smuts served in both World War I and World War II, being the only person to sign both the Treaty of Versailles and the United Nations Charter. In a 2004 poll, he was named one of the Top Ten Greatest South Africans of all time.
