Sir George Ruthven Le Hunte KCMG (Brit., 1852-1925) was Governor of South Australia from 1903 to 1909, soon after the federation of Australia. Le Hunte served as President of Dominica, Secretary of Barbados and Mauritius, and Lieutenant-Governor of British New Guinea. As South Australian Governor, he became the first patron of the Royal Automobile Association of South Australia when it was formed in 1903. Towards the end of his career he was Governor of Trinidad and Tobago. The District Council of Le Hunte in the north of Eyre Peninsula was named after him before it was changed to Wudinna District Council in 2008. Ref: Wiki.
