History

Alderman Fern gave much of his time to the world of amateur swimming administration, who also served in local government and was a governor of the School from 1921 to 1965, including a period as chairman.

He came to Founder's Day on Saturday 15th June 1974, when he cut the ribbon to the Fern Building, which was named in his honour.

His name lives on not only in the Amateur Swimming Association's headquarters in Loughborough (Harold Fern House) and the Fern Building at School, but also in the School's H E Fern prize for Social Service, which he generously endowed.
