Denning, Alfred Thompson Denning, Baron
▪ 2000
“Tom” 
      British judge who was known as a champion of the common man, more concerned with justice than with the strict letter of the law; one of the U.K.'s best-known and most highly respected judges, he served as master of the rolls for 20 of his 38 years on the bench and gained special prominence in 1963 when he presided over the sex-and-politics scandal that ensued when it was revealed that British War Secretary John Profumo was having an affair with a model, Christine Keeler, who was also involved with a Soviet diplomat (b. Jan. 23, 1899, Whitchurch, Hampshire, Eng.—d. March 5, 1999, Winchester, Hampshire, Eng.).
