From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir George Campbell (1824 – 18 February 1892) was a Scottish Liberal Party politician. He was Member of Parliament (MP) for Kirkcaldy Burghs from 1875 to 1892.

From 1871 to 1874 he was Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal. During his tenure the Pabna Disturbances occurred. With his proclamation on July 4th 1873 guaranteeing government support of peasants against excessive zamindar demands he ensured that the prostest remained peaceful, at the same time antagonising the landlords and his namesake George Campbell, 8th Duke of Argyll at that time Secretary of State for India.
