Geoffry Hurry (15 September 1868 – 7 February 1951) was an Australian politician. Born in Kyneton, Victoria, he attended Melbourne Grammar School before becoming a solicitor. He served on Kyneton Shire Council before undergoing military service from 1915 to 1920. In 1922, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Nationalist member for Bendigo, succeeding Prime Minister Billy Hughes, who transferred to North Sydney, and defeating Edmund Jowett, the Country Party member for the abolished seat of Grampians. Hurry held the seat until his defeat in 1929, after which he became a lawyer. He died in 1951.[1]
