Cecil Lubbock, a short biography

By Charles Chadwyck-Healey

Bassingbourn, The Penchant Press, 2008.

ISBN 978 0 95437 563 8

A short biography of Cecil Lubbock that places this brilliant man in the context of his time – from the late 19th century to the 1940s. Head boy of Eton; with a first class degree in Greats at Oxford, he became a managing director of Whitbread, was a Fellow of Eton College, and was on the Court of the Bank of England for 33 years. He was one of Montagu Norman’s closest friends and confidants; was Deputy Governor for two terms and was responsible for the controversial plans for the rebuilding of the Bank of England in the 1920s. Yet, as a friend wrote in The Times after his death, ‘True greatness is hard to define, and Cecil Lubbock’s combination of scholarship, distinction in the City, and Christianity defies the written word’.
