Edgar T. Shepherd was a long standing servant of the Society. As an accountant he held the post of Hon. Treasurer for many years, but even before this had assisted in that role.

From the report of the Photographic section in Volume LXXXV of the Transactions in 1956 it is noted that: -

The Section are greatly indebted to Mr. Edgar T. Shepherd for presenting a beautiful Bronze Statuette of two horses, for competition, to be known as the Edgar Shepherd Trophy. The Edgar Shepherd Trophy was won by Miss W. Cooke.
