The Foundation have created a display for St Albans Library with pictures and information covering aspects of Samuel's extraordinary life, including his seed business and the foundation of the Ryder Cup. Many images are from the older and more recent history of the great sporting event. The display is up for the duration of the Ryder Cup at the library in the Maltings shopping centre.
On Wednesday 2nd of September 2010 trustees of The Samuel Ryder Foundation joined author Peter Fry and St Albans councillor Sheila Burton (Heritage and Culture Portfolio Holder) at the former magistrates court in The Old Town Hall. Peter was promoting the softback edition of his book “Samuel Ryder The Man Behind The Ryder Cup”.
The highlight of the afternoon was when Jean Taylor ex-employee of Ryder & Son came to purchase a signed copy of the book. Jean worked for three years in the despatch department, when the company was managed by Samuel's daughter Joan Ryder. She also revealed that her mother was taught at Sunday school by Joan.
