Samuel Looker was a passionate promoter of Richard Jefferies' writing. No one has done more to ensure that his works have reached the general public. Looker was the first President of the Society from 1950 until his death in 1965. The Society produced a Tribute to Looker in 1980 that can be downloaded at  http://richardjefferiessociety.co.uk/articles/39_Tribute_Looker.pdf
