Thank you for visiting this tribute page to Dr John Marks
Dr Marks was CUWBC Senior Treasurer from 1977 to 1993 and Honorary Treasurer of CUBC from 1986 to 1996 and 1998/99. He was a Life Fellow of Girton College where a beautiful sports pavilion was named in his honour. Dr Marks once said ‘Sport is an essential ingredient of the all-round education’. How wise he was.
Dr Marks worked in several medical research and administrative posts, some executive, many consultant. These included the roles, of Research, Marketing Director and CEO of the British and Commonwealth office of a major foreign international company. He wrote or edited, alone or with others some 30 technical books and monographs in several disciplines. And in addition to this Dr Marks was involved in the writing of several books on rowing history.
Dr Marks was a charming man who always had kind words and a smile for everyone he met. He is fondly remembered by so many members of the Cambridge University rowing community and will be much missed.
We ask you to leave a tribute to Dr Marks and share your memories of this very special member of our CUWBC family.
