"Harford Montgomery Hyde (1907-1989), born in Belfast, was a barrister, politician (Ulster Unionist MP for Belfast North), author and biographer, who lost his seat in the House of Commons as a result of campaigning for homosexual law reform. Although he had made little secret of his progressive views during the capital punishment debates, the campaign for access to the Casement diaries, Hyde’s political undoing were his parliamentary interventions and outspoken views on the decriminalisation of homosexuality: He wrote extensively about the Oscar Wilde trials and Wilde's immediate circle."
