Grover Vandevender (1894-1974) was recognized by the Huntsmen's Room in 1999. Vandevender bred and trained horses in Albemarle County, Virginia, and taught the art of foxhunting to three generations of riders including William Faulkner. He became huntsman at Farmington Hunt in 1929 and held that position for 32 years. The late Jack Rinehart, former MFH of Farmington praised Mr. Vandevender as "one of the greatest huntsmen I have ever known. He was endowed with a sixth sense when it came to handling hounds, horses and children."

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something
that makes you feel good. Perhaps it’s the risk, the gamble.
In any event, it’s a thing I need.
– William Faulkner, National Observer, Febuary 3, 1964
