Elected Life Member 1935
“An articulate and complex man, an individualist whose administrative ability derived from the respect he commanded from others.”
Rex Gatherer was not a lifesaver himself, he couldn’t swim. However, he brought a professional, businesslike approach to club administration.
He was club President in the 1930-31 season, and from 1936 to 1939. He also served as state President in the 1943-44 season, and in 1938 was awarded state Life Membership.
