Bill Tobin (ice hockey)

Bill Tobin (born May 20, 1895 in Ottawa, Ontario - May 8, 1963) is a former Canadian ice hockey player, executive and head coach. He was president of the Chicago Black Hawks from the team's inception in 1926 until 1954. For the last ten of those years (1944–1954), he was also nominally the team's owner. However, he was actually a puppet for Detroit Red Wings owner James E. Norris, who had helped Tobin put together a syndicate to buy the team from the estate of founding Black Hawks owner Frederic McLaughlin. Ironically, Norris had been the Black Hawks' landlord since 1936, when he bought Chicago Stadium.

Tobin was head coach of the Black Hawks for two seasons, 1929–30 and 1931–32. He was included on the Stanley Cup team picture with Chicago as executive in 1934 and 1938. However, his name was only included on the Cup in 1938.
