SAAD - History

The Society's Trust Deed was drawn up by the Lord Chancellor of England and a future eminent professor of anaesthesia, Robert MacIntosh (later Professor Sir Robert MacIntosh), attended meetings because at the time he was providing anaesthesia for dentistry at a dental practice in Mayfair.
Although pursuing a fellowship in surgery MacIntosh needed the money dental anaesthesia brought in. Unwittingly SAAD was to become a catalyst in the academic and clinical development of anaesthesia in the UK. MacIntosh gave an anaesthetic in the Mayfair dental practice to Sir William Morris (of motor car fame). Sir Robert MacIntosh Morris and MacIntosh became friends and subsequently Morris told MacIntosh that Oxford University had approached him with a plan to endow chairs in medicine, surgery and midwifery. Morris and MacIntosh became friends and subsequently Morris told MacIntosh that Oxford University had approached him with a plan to endow chairs in medicine, surgery and midwifery. MacIntosh persuaded Sir William Morris that to endow a chair in anaesthesia would be both innovative and extraordinary. Sir Robert MacIntosh became the first Professor of Anaesthesia in Europe and Sir William Morris became Lord Nuffield.
