Lord Kinnaird (1880-1972)

Extract from the EFA Annual Report 1971/72

The Committee records with deep regret the death of Lord Kinnaird, who had been Patron of the Association since before the war.

In his youth he did much to popularise the game, and his donation of the Kinnaird Cup has for almost a half century inspired many to enter for the Amateur Championship, and has had a very profound influence in raising standards of play generally.
