Visit from daughters of Fred Ryder OE

Tuesday, 7 October, 2014 -- Mark Stickings

Fred Ryder attended Eltham College from 1939-43 and passed away two years ago at the age of 86.  His daughters Jan Perks and Sue Bush (in photo) visited Eltham College to see where their Dad had come to school and learn a little more about his days here. 

They kindly donated some of his possessions to the Eltham College archives, including a smart cricket cap (Fred was in the 1st XI) and some of his exercise books.  In return Archivist Mark Stickings was able to give them a copy of the entries we have for Fred in the archive, such as the record card with his grades and other snippets from the Elthamian.
