Just as Alexander Coupar Gibb gave great service to the Shire of Broadmeadows, his brother James served as a councillor for 30 years but also became a member of the state and federal parliaments.

His biography tells how his early days on Meadowbank and advice he received there from workers,who like the Gibbs came from the Carse O' Gowrie, helped him to develop Melville Park at Berwick. The article includes a fairly good photo of James Gibb and much information so it was unfortunate that James' surname was written wrongly.
