History of the fellowships
The Houblon-Norman Fellowship was established in 1944 to celebrate our 250th anniversary. It is named after the first Governor of the Bank, Sir John Houblon, and the Governor at the time of the anniversary, Montagu Norman.
The George Fellowship was established in 2003 to recognise former Governor Sir Edward George’s lifelong service to the Bank, and his role as the first chair of our Monetary Policy Committee.
