MCC Presidents

In total, there have been 168 Presidents of MCC, including three men who served two terms.

As there are 33 missing years, we can assume that the 2005 President (TW Graveney) was the 200th to have held office.

Of these Presidents, one was Royal, 93 were noblemen, eight were honourable, six were baronets and 13 were knights.

Of the 48 'commoners' to have held office, 25 have held office in the past 32 years.

On 7 May 2014 it was announced that FD Morgan will succeed MW Gatting on 1 October 2014.
