Dr. H. J. Rögler
Orgnaniser of the 10th World Vegetarian Congress, 1938
IVU Committee Member 1938-194?
IVU Honorary Vice President 1953-76
It is likely that Dr. Rögler attended IVU Congresses before 1938, but we have no specific mention of him until he organised that Congress, in Norway, at short notice after the plans to hold it in Zurich were scuppered by the poilitical situation.
From the reports of the 1938 Congress:
The Congresses planned for 1941, England, and 1944, Holland were both cancelled. After the war IVU was re-constituted with just a President, Secretary and Treasurer, but no other committee members, so Dr. Rögler's time on the committee was short-lived.
From reports of the 1947 Congress:
From reports of the 1950 Congress:
From reports of the 1953 Congress:
There is a note of Dr. Rögler attending a Committee meeting in 1958, and remained an Honorary Vice President until 1976 but does not appear to have played any further active role in IVU.
