Specific articles on Henry Norris who rescued the club in 1910 and went on to move the club, build Highbury and bring in Herbert Chapman. Please note that the club’s chairman was known simply as Henry Norris until 1917 when he was awarded a knighthood and made a Lt Colonel as part of his work in the recruitment drive during the first world war. From that date on his official title was Lt Col Sir Henry Norris, and from late 1918 he was the Honourable Lt Col Sir Henry Norris MP.
For simplicity most of the time he is named as Henry Norris, but this is not in any way intended as a discourtesy to his memory or to his family.
