Who was Frederick Homes Dudden?
Frederick Homes Dudden was an academic administrator and theological scholar. He was Chaplain to King George V and George VI, Master of Pembroke College, Oxford and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University.
Frederick Dudden was educated at Bath College and Pembroke College, Oxford. Dudden was Vicar of Holy Trinity Church in Sloane Street, central London. He was Fellow, Lecturer in theology and Chaplain of Lincoln College, Oxford. He was Canon of Gloucester. At Oxford University, he was a member of Hebdomadal Council and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, before and after his time as Vice-Chancellor.
At Pembroke College, he was the first Master to live in the Lodgings. The previous Master's House was converted into undergraduate accommodation in 1928. He was a friend of Lord Nuffield, which led to the endowment of the Pembroke Mastership. This freed subsequent Masters of Pembroke from the financial need to take the position of Canon at Gloucester Cathedral, which had been given to the College by Queen Anne in 1714.
