Macintosh Conference

This special conference is held annually in memory of Dr. Donald deFrayne Macintosh who passed away in 1994. He was a faculty member in the School of Kinseiology and Health Studies (formerly School of Physical and Health Education), from 1965 to 1994. He was appointed Director in 1965 and provided exceptional leadership for sixteen years before returning to teaching and research. Friends and colleagues at Queen's created a special fund to honour Dr. Macintosh, called the Donald Macintosh Memorial Visiting Scholar Fund, which is used to bring prominent scholars in the field of sociology of sport or sport policy to Queen's University to provide the keynote lecture at this one day event.
