GILBERTSON IS DEAD
Former State Treasurer and Prominent Banker Succumbs.
HELD MANY PUBLIC OFFICES
Des Moines – Gilbert S. Gilbertson, one of the best known business men of Iowa, died at the Iowa Lutheran hospital following a stroke of paralysis recently.
Mr. Gilbertson was 54 years old. He had severed most of his active business connections here and for some time past he and his wife have been living in California hoping to benefit his health. He was recently brought back to Des Moines for medical attention.
Mr. Gilbertson was for three terms state treasurer of Iowa, was one of the leading figures in banking circles and was prominently connected with the republican party. He had been president of the Iowa Trust and Savings bank, the Inter-State Business Men’s Accidental association and the Northwester Land and Colonization company.
His political career was begun as clerk of the District Court of Winnebago county in 1889, which position he held for eight years. In 1896 he was elected state senator from the forty-first district. He was well known all over the state. He served as city treasurer of Forest City for ten years and was chairman of the Winnebago county republican central committee for nine years. He was married in 1899 to Miss Belle D. Whitney. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. E. Chase West and Mrs. Earl H. Scripps, both of Des Moines.
