He gave rather confronting evidence into the Royal Commission of The Basic Wage in 1920 . In 1930 he was found not-guilty in a traffic accident which resulted in a child's death). He changed his surname in 1933 to Roseby, due to it being identical to that of one of Hitler's high officials. )

VICE PRESIDENTS (1885 to 1972)
Includes proxy vice presidents.
The lists of vice presidents recorded in annual reports, membership tickets, minute books, and at annual meetings are often in conflict prior to the VFL era. I suspect that the holders of this position shifted and changed throughout the season. So, some the vice presidents at the beginning of the season, as shown on membership tickets, may not be the vice presidents at season’s end, as shown in annual reports. This explains why vice presidents may be listed as patrons in different sources of the same year and partly explains the extraordinary numbers of vice presidents, often into the 40s during the Edwardian era. Company names are also recorded so some individuals may be recorded twice in this list under their company’s name and their personal name (ie: Lovell and Lovell Bros. in 1902). I also suspect two women have been recorded twice. Mrs. Webster may well be D. Webster and Mrs. Stevens could be E. Stevens.
Prior to 19__ there were no limits to the number of vice presidents. The numbers reached a peak in 1906 when the club boasted as many as 54 of them. It seems that vice president status was given according to the size of a monetary donation to the club.
In 1910 the number of sitting vice presidents was limited to nine. When was it reduced to six?? and in 1961 the number was further reduced to three.
From 1972 there are there are no appointees to the positions of vice president, but the position of Deputy President will assume the title Vice President in 1979.

Notes:
DEPUTY and VICE PRESIDENTS (From 1969)
(currently missing 2000)
In 1969 the position of Deputy President was instituted as a position quite distinct from Vice President. In 1972 no Vice Presidents were appointed but the position of Deputy President remained. In 1979 the title Deputy President was changed to Vice President.
In 1985 the position was again referred to as Deputy President and in 1986 as Deputy Vice President. The correct inheritor of the position was confused in 1987 when Bill Durham, the retiring President, was honoured as the “Vice President” while Garry Krauss, the incumbent retained his “Deputy Vice President” title. To ease confusion I have listed the “Deputy Vice President” holder separately.


No.1 MEMBERS/ MALE TICKET HOLDERS
Background
For thirty four years this honour was presented to the Governors of Victoria, thus each recipient was also referred to as our Vice Regal Member.
The earliest known reference to a Governor being made an honorary member was on May 28, 1938, when Lord Huntingfield, the Governor of Victoria and Australia’s acting Governor General accepted the honour, but no reference is made to him being the No.1 member.
Sir Winston Duggan was presented an honorary membership on July 6, 1940, at Richmond’s match against Carlton. Thereafter Governors were generally granted the honour soon after their arrival from England and surrendered it when they returned.
In 1974 it was decided to present the No.1 membership ticket to people who have given “loyal and devoted” service to the club.
In 1977 and 1978 the club decided to have two No.1 members.
In 1996 the honour was renamed No.1 Male Ticket Holder, I assume it was to distinguish it from the recently established No.1 Lady Member, an honour that was also renamed No.1 Female Ticket Holder.


Notes:
GENERAL MANAGER / SECRETARY
In 2000/1 the title changed again to Chief Executive Officer.



This is an alphabetised list of Richmond officials with the senior team from 1885 - Present.
Note that many of these people contributed across multiple roles at the club. Therefore it may be impossible to list all their achievements. The Richmond Annual Reports have been a strong source to identify the role they provided.
