The Earl of Perth, 95, who oversaw Britain's colonies in the turbulent 1950s and '60s and managed the redevelopment of parts of war-damaged London, died Nov. 25 at his home in central Scotland. No cause of death was given. A tall, patrician figure who loved the arts, Perth was born John David Drummond. He was appointed minister of state at the Colonial Office in 1957 by then-Prime Minister Anthony Eden, when many colonies were pushing toward independence.
