of the CLUB
Seventy years ago, a group of people in the air handling and related industries agreed to form a Dinner Discussion Club to provide opportunities to meet in an informal atmosphere for friendly interchange of views and experiences. This became The Rumford Club. The aims of successive Chairs have been to promote high good humour, insistence on tradition, a readiness to break new ground, a dedication to technical matters and a belief in the essentially social character of the Club.
Rumford Club has been pleased to welcome many
distinguished guests and speakers on a wide variety of
topics over the years. Black Tie Dinners have been
held at the Halls of many London Livery Companies and
at buildings and locations of historical interest such
The House of Commons and Tower Bridge. A notable
addition to the Club activities was the introduction
Ladies Evenings in 1971 and this has proved a great
a special thanks to Honorary Secretary David Wood and
all Club members who have contributed information and
illustrations. Without their participation this e-book
would not have been possible.
