Prime Minister of France. Chautemps political career began in 1919 when he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies as a Radical Socialist. He held positions in coalition governments of the 1920's and briefly served as Prime Minister in 1930. He became Prime Minister again from November 26, 1933, to January 30, 1934. This government fell as a result of popular reaction to the suspicious death of embezzler Alexandre Stavisky, though Chautemps was not personally implicated. He headed another government from June 22, 1937, to March 13, 1938, and then was Vice President of the Council in the Edouard Daladier and Paul Reynaud governments from April 1938 until June 1940. After France's surrender to Nazi Germany, Chautemps was a minister in the Vichy France government of Philippe Petain. He broke with the Petain government after arriving in the United States on an official mission and lived in the U.S. for much of the rest of his life.
