Chris Watson was born in Chile to British parents and educated in NZ, where he became a printing apprentice. He moved to Sydney in 1886 and joined the newly formed Labor Leagues, the precursor to the Labor Party. In 1894 he entered the NSW Legislative Assembly and in 1901 was elected to the first House of Representatives, where he became the federal Labor leader. In 1904, when the Deakin government lost parliamentary support, Watson formed the first Australian Labor ministry and became prime minister and treasurer. This was the first national Labor government in the world. His government lacked a majority, however, and it was only a matter of time until it was outvoted by the combined opposition. Watson's main achievement in his short term in office was to show the electorate that Labor could govern responsibly and was firmly committed to the parliamentary process. He gave up the party leadership in 1907 and resigned from parliament in 1910.
