Cambridge District Scout Archive
This role was initially filled by able administrators from outside Scouting, bringing their own worth and authority to the committee. Since WW2 the role has been filled by longstanding Scouters with a history of leadership inside and outside Scouting.
The records are incomplete, particularly during the two World Wars.
The committee that came together to form the District selected Rev A S Duncan Jones, Dean of Caius College, and W H D Rouse, Headmaster of the Perse, as the alternating chairman.
