 Guardian | Major Ronald Ferguson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Major Ronald Ferguson, who has died aged 71, was an amiable man, who came to public prominence as the father of the Queen's second daughter-in-law, Sarah, Duchess of York, and sustained the popular entertainment through his connections with polo and massage parlours.
The fact that Major Ferguson - his continued use of the army rank in civilian life also belonged to an earlier era - had been making tabloid headlines in 1988 for using a seedy massage parlour was unlikely to have been entirely irrelevant to this decision.
Ferguson spent his latter years working on his farm, on a horse and sometimes exercising an eventer for his daughter Alice, or relaxing at a health farm.

 Closing the Achievement Gap: Two Views from Current Research. ERIC Digest.
Ronald Ferguson of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University analyzed the data collected by the Minority Student Achievement Network, formed by fifteen middle- and upper-middle-income districts throughout the nation.
For Ferguson, the role of the teacher and the school is to encourage the individual student to meet the demands of academic work by changing classroom practices.
Ferguson, on the other hand, argues that schools need to develop interventions that improve minority students' capacity to master the learning tasks of the classroom through academic encouragement, implying that their success will change their self-concept and identity.

 A major gift for galloping into scandal - smh.com.au
Major Ronald Ferguson, who died on Sunday aged 71, would probably have remained in comparative obscurity as a polo player and administrator of the sport had it not been for the marriage of his daughter Sarah into the royal family.
As it was, after Sarah Ferguson married Prince Andrew in 1986, her father became something of a public figure in his own right, his every activity - and in particular his occasional romantic indiscretions - of consuming interest to the tabloid press.
Ferguson was a bluff, uncomplicated former soldier, and although he and his family were no strangers to royalty or to the protocol around it, he was ill equipped to negotiate the perilous intrigues of court life.
