An excellent Postcard featuring Lord Hawke, Marked Lord Hawke Yorks CC

Lord Hawke strode the cricketing world like a colossus for half a century, as a player and administrator, and one who played a major part in the modernisation of the game. He was a keen advocate of overseas tours, a strict disciplinarian, and a determined upholder of the games traditions. Hawke's life was cricket. He captained Yorkshire for 28 seasons during which time they won eight Championships, and was the county's president for 40 years (despite having been born in Lincolnshire, he fiercely advocated that all players should be born in Yorkshire). He was MCC president from 1914 to 1919, its treasurer and a trustee between 1932 and 1938, and a national selector from 1899 to 1909 and again in 1933. He was no mean batsman either, winning Blues for Cambridge, and leading England in Tests in South Africa. full name Martin Bladen Hawke (Lord Hawke) Born August 16, 1860, Willingham Rectory, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire Died October 10, 1938, West End, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland (aged 78 years 55 days) Major teams England, Cambridge University, Yorkshire Also known as succeeded as 7th Baron Hawke in 1887 Batting style Right-hand bat
