Frederick Arthur Stanley, Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby, governor general of Canada 1888–93 (born 15 January 1841 in London, England; died 14 June 1908 in Holwood, England). His father, Edward Smith Stanley, the 14th Early of Derby, was three times British Prime Minister, and Stanley himself was a Member of Parliament 1865–86, and then sat in the House of Lords. He held several positions in government, including civil lord of the Admiralty, secretary of state for war, and secretary of state for the colonies. Although a strong advocate of closer ties between Great Britain and dominions such as Canada, he was a publicly shy and politically careful governor general. He is primarily remembered for his donation in 1892 of the Stanley Cup, designed to determine a Canadian hockey champion in a fair and uniform manner.
