In Memoriam: Professor Emeritus Norman Macintosh

Posted on May 19, 2011

Flags on campus are lowered for Professor Emeritus Norman Macintosh.

Professor Macintosh came to Queen’s in 1967 where he served for more than three decades. He was the only professor to garner the School of Business Research Excellence Award twice. He was inducted into the Queen’s School of Business Faculty Hall of Fame in 2009.

His visiting appointments in Europe, the United States, Australia and Asia testify to the international reach of his research and teaching. Two of his books are regarded as classics in the field of behavioural accounting. His articles, published in the top academic journals in his field, attracted worldwide attention and continue to be widely cited by his peers. Dr. Macintosh received both research and teaching awards from the Canadian Academic Accounting Association during his career (“distinguished contribution to thought” and “outstanding educator,” respectively).

Professor Macintosh is survived by his wife, Joan, by sons Bruce and Cameron, and by three grandchildren. A memorial service will be held later in the year at Queen’s. The family respectfully requests that flowers not be sent to the residence; donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation Cancer Centre, the Kingston Humane Society, or the Sports Wall of Fame at the University of Alberta.
