Annual conference in the field of Sociology of Sport or Sport Policy.
Donald Macintosh

Dr. Donald deFrayne Macintosh was a faculty member in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies (formerly the School of Physical and Health Education) from 1965 until his death in 1994. Appointed Director of the School in 1965, he provided exceptional leadership for sixteen years before returning to teaching and research in 1981.

To honour his memory and contributions to the School, friends and colleagues  created 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.

This one-day conference is normally held the last Saturday in January.
