George S. "Gloomy Gus" McGill (February 12, 1879-May 14, 1963) was an American politician from Kansas. Born in Lucas County, Iowa, he moved with his parents to Kansas when he was 5. He graduated from Central Normal College in Great Bend, Kansas at the turn of the century and was admitted to the state bar two years later. McGill then moved to Wichita, Kansas where he was made deputy county attorney and then county attorney for Sedgwick County, Kansas. He was elected to the Senate on November 4, 1930 to replace Senator Charles Curtis, who resigned to become Vice President of the United States (former governor Henry J. Allen was appointed to fill the seat until a successor was elected). In the Senate, he was the chairman of the committee on pensions and was particularly involved in the Agricultural Adjustment Act. He was re-elected in 1932 but lost re-election bids in 1938, 1946 and 1954. He died in St. Francis Hospital in 1963 and was buried in Pawnee Rock Cemetery, in Pawnee Rock, Kansas.
