Joseph Morgan (politician)

Joseph William Morgan (1898 19 September 1962) was a politician from Northern Ireland.

Morgan ran a drapers' shop, but was also a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.[1] He became active in the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) and was elected at the Northern Ireland general election, 1953, representing Belfast Cromac.[2] He held his seat at the 1958 general election, not having to face an opponent.[2] After the election, he was appointed as the first Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means.[1]

In 1960, Morgan was appointed to the Committee of Privileges, and also served on the Ulster Unionist Council.[3] He again held his seat at the Northern Ireland general election, 1962,[2] but died a few months later.[1]

In his spare time, Morgan was an Orangeman and a member of the Apprentice Boys of Derry. He was also vice-president of Glentoran F.C.[3]
