Description:
Terence Norbert Donovan, Baron Donovan PC (13 June 1898 – 12 December 1971) was a British Labour Party politician, and later a judge.

Born in West Ham, London, Donovan came to office in the Labour landslide in the 1945 general election. He was elected as Member of Parliament for Leicester East. When that constituency was abolished for the 1950 general election, he was re-elected for the new Leicester North East constituency.

However, Donovan resigned from the House of Commons within weeks of the election, when he was appointed as a High Court judge. He was promoted to the Appeals Court in 1960, when he also became a Privy Counsellor. In 1964 he was appointed as a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, remaining in post until 1971. As a Law lord he was given a life peerage as Baron Donovan, of Winchester in the County of Hampshire. He died within the City of London aged 73.
