Biography

A boxing judge and referee at the 1924 Paris Olympics, Harry Chandley held many positions with the Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) and was elected president in 1950. He remained in that position for two years until his resignation, when he then became an honorary vice-president.

Chandley started boxing when he was a boy scout and won his first novices tournament at the age of 17. He went on to become one of the great organisers and administrators within the sport, was completely dedicated to the amateur game and had very little time for the professional branch of the sport. Chandley was one of the pioneers of London’s Fitzroy Lodge ABC and became its president in the 1920s. A civil servant, he served as a second lieutenant with the Army Service Corps in World War I.
