From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Gibson (3 April 1885 – 4 February 1953) was a British mental health professional and trade unionist. Rising to the presidency of the Trades Union Congress in 1941 and becoming a director of the Bank of England, he was ruined through his, largely innocent, association with fraudster Sidney Stanley which was exposed by the Lynskey tribunal in 1948.
