Gordon Sinclair Davidson (17 January 1915 – 25 November 2002) was an Australian politician. He was a grazier and church administrator before entering politics. In 1961, he was appointed to the Australian Senate as a Liberal Senator for South Australia, filling the casual vacancy caused by the death of Rex Pearson. He did not contest the 1961 election, and his term ended later in 1961. He was re-appointed to the Senate, however, when Senator Nancy Buttfield, who had been elected in Davidson's place, resigned to take on the shorter term. Davidson's term expired in 1962. He was elected in his own right in 1964, and served until his retirement in 1981.[1]
