Gibson, J. T. (1854–1896)

The wool trade is mourning the decease of Mr. J. T. Gibson, which took place at Melbourne on 2nd May. Mr. Gibson, who was 42 years of age at the time of his death, had been engaged in the wool business from his boyhood, and had been well-known in Melbourne since 1863 as the representative of Messrs. Robert Jouitt and Sons, of Leeds and London, in which firm he became a partner in 1890. It is safe to say that no buyer in the trade was more popular amongst the selling brokers, as well as the buyers. A more genial and amiable man it would be hard to meet.
