Past Chairmen and Secretaries

The minutes of organising committee meetings record that Paul L Taylor, who donated the Taylor Trophy, was President of the Contest until his death in October 1982. The position of President appears to have lapsed at that point.

The positions of Chairman and Secretary were held jointly until 1984 when splitting the roles was proposed and adopted.
