Sir Lee Oliver Fitzmaurice Stack GBE, CMG (1868 – 19 November 1924) was a British army officer and Governor-General of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan.[1] On 19 November 1924, he was shot and assassinated while driving through Cairo.[2]

The British responded with anger, demanding of the Egyptian government a public apology, an inquiry, suppression of demonstrations and payment of a large fine. Further, they demanded withdrawal of all Egyptian officers and Egyptian army units from the Sudan, an increase to the scope of an irrigation scheme in Gezira and laws to protect foreign investors in Egypt.[3]

Sir Geoffrey Archer, formerly Governor of Uganda, took over as Governor-General of the Sudan in January 1925, the first time a civilian had held this office.[4]
