Sir Samuel Joseph, 1st Baronet
Sir Samuel George Joseph, 1st Baronet (15 August 1888 – 4 October 1944) was the 615th Lord Mayor of London.
Samuel Joseph made a name for himself when in 1908, together with his cousin, Sydney Gluckstein, he acquired C. W. Bovis & Co., then a local builder, and expanded it into a major construction business. It was said that he was a 'genius for organisation'.
During World War I, Samuel Joseph went off to France to fight for the British Army. On his return he personally supervised a building development at Sussex Square in London for Winston Churchill.
He later became an underwriter for Lloyds of London and an Alderman of the City of London. He served as Sheriff of London for 1933 and Lord Mayor of London for 1942 to 1943. He became a baronet at the end of his term as Lord Mayor on 16 November 1943. He died in 1944.
