Ivison Macadam


Ivison Macadam

.

He was born in Edinburgh and educated at King's College London. He was one of the original trustees of the NUS, being elected first President in 1922 when the Inter-Varsity Association and the International Students Bureau merged at a joint meeting held at the University of London.

He was awarded the OBE in 1919 at the age of only 25.

The main students' union building at King's College's Strand campus is named the Macadam Building in his honour. In 2004, KCLSU President Michael Champion instituted the Macadam Cup, a day of sporting excellence between medical and non-medical students at the College.
