Canadian accountant and deep state operative, and brother of Walter L. Gordon.
Duncan Lockhart Gordon was a Canadian accountant and deep state operative, and brother of fellow Bilderberger Walter L. Gordon.
Born in 1914, Duncan Lockhart Gordon was the third son of Lt. Colonel Harry Duncan Lockhart Gordon and Kathleen H. Cassels’ five children. Like his father and two older brothers, he was educated at Upper Canada College in Toronto and the Royal Military College in Kingston.
His brother, Walter Gordon, helped establish the Foreign Exchange Control Board in 1939. During the war years, he was special advisor to the deputy minister of finance. In 1955 he chaired the [The Gordon Commission]], created in response to the rising tide of foreign ownership in the Canadian economy.
Duncan served in uniform from the beginning to the end of the Second World War — more than six years—and rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel. While fighting with Canadian forces in Italy, Duncan was wounded at the battle of Monte Casino. He was awarded the Member of the British Empire (MBE) medal as well as the Italy Star and other military campaign decorations.
On his return from Europe after WWII, Duncan Gordon joined Clarkson, Gordon & Company where he became a senior partner and ran the company after his brother entered politics.
Although he had a quieter public profile than Walter, he was passionately involved with the development of the Hospital for Sick Children and served for many years as Chair of its board of directors.
His interest in health issues is reflected in the work of the Foundation between 1965 and 1987. Its beneficiaries included the Canadian Institute for Child Health, St. John Ambulance, Montreal General Hospital, Toronto General Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital Fund, National Mental Health Fund, the Canadian Paraplegic Association, the Lupus Association, Dying with Dignity, Hospice King and the Casey House Hospice.
In 1987 he was awarded the Order of Canada.
