Presidency[edit]

I'm interested in compiling a list of Presidents of the RPA. A couple are easy to reference: 1955-1970 Bertrand Russell, 1982-1999 Hermann Bondi. Others

There's a list in Bill Cooke's The Blasphemy Depot (2003):
  • Graham Wallas, 1926-1929
  • Harold Laski, 1929-1933
  • Lord Harry Snell, 1933-1940
  • Surgeon Rear Admiral C M Beadnell, 1940-1947
  • CD Darlington, 1948-1949
  • AE Heath, 1949-1954
  • Bertrand Russell, 1955-1970
  • Baroness Wootton, 1970-1973
  • Lord Ritchie Calder, 1973-1981
  • Hermann Bondi, 1981-
  • Bondi died in September 2005. Jonathan Miller became president in 2006.[3]
  • Herbert Leon is listed as a Chair of the Board of Directors, 1913-1922, not as President.

Bondi according to several reliable sources was the president (1982-1999), not up to 2005. Who replaced Bondi? In 2006 it was Jonathan Miller, and now it is Laurie Taylor but I do not know when Taylor took over from Miller. Anyone know the dates? I have a big foot (talk) 08:32, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
