Son of Tom Ferguson, Captain of Hawthorn when the Club played in the MJFA in 1906, Dr. Sandy Ferguson was recruited by Dr. Jona for the position of Club Medico in 1950. He was to serve in that position for 29 years. Undertaking the role of Club President in 1953, Dr Ferguson set his aims to create a Club that was respected by all and to win a premiership.1961 saw the fulfillment of that dream and the Ferguson spirit and legacy continues on today with his now famous slogan “If you embrace Hawthorn, Hawthorn will embrace you”. He remained a respected voice behind the scenes. 
In 2001 in honour of Dr Ferguson services to Hawthorn, a medal in his name was struck. The medal was presented to the army of volunteers who gave their services willingly to the Club between 1996 - 2001 after the attempted merge between Hawthorn and the Melbourne Football Clubs in 1996.
