Hugo Hirst, 1st Baron Hirst
Hugo Hirst, 1st Baron Hirst (26 November 1863 – 22 January 1943), known as Sir Hugo Hirst, Bt, between 1925 and 1934, was a German-born British industrialist.
Hirst's eldest daughter Muriel married Leslie Gamage, the elder son of Arthur Walter Gamage, the founder of Gamages department store. Leslie joined GEC and became Chairman and Managing Director after Hirst's death.
As both his son and his grandson died before Hirst, his baronetcy and peerage both became extinct on his death in 1943.
