Sir James Adam Louis Matheson KBE (11 February 1912 - 27 March 2002) was a British academic and university administrator, who was the first Vice-Chancellor of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Matheson was born in England in 1912, and went on to study engineering at Manchester University. After spending 6 years as a civil engineer from 1933 to 1938, he took up a position at the University of Birmingham and then the University of Melbourne, where he modernised the Melbourne University engineering curriculum. At Melbourne University, he worked under Robert Blackwood, a relationship that continued when Blackwood went on to become Monash's first Chancellor. In 1951, after only a few years in Australia, he returned to the UK to accept the Beyer Chair in Engineering at the University of Manchester.show more
