Does anyone know the dates between which Princess Margaret was patron of the EFDSS? And for that matter, might we build a chronology of patrons/presidents of the EFDSS?

Princess Margaret was Patron of the EFDSS from September 1948 until 1960.

Presidents of English Folk Dance Society:
Lady Mary Trefusis 1913-1927
Lady Ampthill 1928-1946
during which time the song and dance societies merged to form the EFDSS:
Ralph Vaughan Williams 1946-1958
The Earl of Verulam 1958-60
Princess Margaret 1960-2002
Ursula Vaughan Williams 2004-2007
Shirley Collins 2008-

Vice-presidents have included Douglas and Helen Kennedy, Ursula Vaughan Williams, Dame Ninette de Valois and - now - Eliza Carthy.

Tom Paley is a great musician, but I do no think he holds any EFDSS office

I think Tom is something to do with an English Old Timey Music organisation

Phil was chief executive (or similar title). Same role as Katy Spicer now. And not to be confused with Chairman of the Board....
