Samuel Sawyer (June 15, 1880 - February 7, 1952) was a Welsh-born politician and the fourth governor of Seven for the Unionist Party.


Sawyer was born to a Welsh-speaking family in Aberystwyth, though it's thought some of his ancestors were English. As a child he was often ill and this resulted in him spending much time in bed reading, rather than going to school. He achieved a scholarship to study law at Jesus College, Oxford, where he performed well, and then went to London to work at the bar.

He soon established himself as a talented lawyer, but found the work dull. After attempting and failing to stand as an MP for the Liberal Party he decided to emigrate eastwards, working for two years at the consulate in Japan. At this time he became ill again and upon his recovery decided to move to a more 'healthy clime,' and boarded a ship bound for California. The ship stopped off at Noble City to collect more food supplies, and passengers were allowed off the ship. Sawyer liked the town and on a whim ordered his luggage off the ship and began a new life in Lovia.

Working as a lawyer once more, first in Noble City, later in Kinley, he helped found the Unionist Party in order to bring down the then-dominant Flintists. He became the party's main ideologist and stood for governor in 1913 on a platform of legal reform, but was defeated by Oliver Flint. He had wished to stand again in the next elections, but once again became ill and was replaced by Henri James Rutherford, Jr., who became governor for two terms, before making way for Sawyer.

Once Sawyer became Governor, he wrote the bulk of Seven law to date, including the Basic Law (Constitution) of Seven. Unlike most previous governors, he was an intellectual and a reserved man who was seen little in public, preferring to work in private. This led to a perception that he was 'lazy.' As a matter of fact, the stress of the role was once more making him ill, and he was able to do little campaigning for the 1921 elections. In any case, he could not compete with the charismatic personality of James Nelson who succeeded him. In retrospect, however, he is considered to be one of the best governors, who laid the legal foundation of Seven.

Personal lifeEdit

Sawyer married Martha Adrian in 1909 and had two sons. He purchased and had rebuilt the Pink House in 1916, current residence for state governors.
