The Kempson Maddox Lecture 

This lecture honours the late Sir J. Kempson Maddox. Sir Kempson, who died in 1990, had a major influence on the development of cardiology in Australia. He was instrumental in the establishment of both the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand in 1951 and the National Heart Foundation of Australia in 1958. He was President of the Cardiac Society from 1956-1958 and played a substantial role in the formation of the Asian-Pacific Society of Cardiology, of which he was President in 1960. He became President of the International Society of Cardiology from 1966 – 1970. 
The Kempson Maddox Lecturer must be an Australian or New Zealander who is a senior member of the Cardiac Society and who has made a substantial contribution to cardiology.
