The January 20 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this article about a May-December romance featuring the governor of the Bank of England.
Montagu Norman (1871-1950) held the governor’s post from 1920 to 1944. He was sympathetic to Germany: he was a member of the Anglo-German Fellowship, and twice tried to transfer Czechoslovakian gold to Nazi Germany (the British blocked the second transfer).
Norman’s health was ruined when he went for a walk and tripped over a cow. He passed away of a stroke in 1950; his wife outlived him by more than 41 years.
