Signature of James Kell

James Kell was appointed Governor of the Commonwealth Bank following the death of Sir Dennison Miller, which office he held until his retirement on the 31st May 1967.

In 1924 the control of banknote issue was changed slightly in that it became vested in Board of Directors of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Because of this change, James Kell is described on some issues as Chairman of Directors of the Note Issue Department of the Commonwealth Bank.
