Oliver Wallop, 8th Earl of Portsmouth
Wallop had moved from England to the United States, and had been living the life of a rancher in Sheridan, Wyoming, at the time of the death in 1925 of his older brother, the 7th Earl. Known as O.H. Wallop, he had served two terms as a Republican in the Wyoming House of Representatives. Wallop, who had become an United States citizen in 1891, was allowed to take his seat in the House of Lords after renouncing American citizenship.
