Anecdote*2014Scotch College Obituary: Kenneth Robert McKenzie DON ('45). Further to the obituary in the April 2014 Great Scot, Ken's son Chris wrote:
Ken started work at Bradford Cotton Mills as a textile engineer and soon after joined his father's industrial power transmission business, Donald Don & Sons. Ken was appointed Managing Director in 1960 and retired in 1985.
Ken furthered his distinguished schoolboy athletic career by winning sprint titles at Victorian and Australian championships over several years. In 1948 he ran 9.6 seconds over the 100 yards, a remarkable time that was only 0.2 seconds outside the then-world record. His athletic career was cut short by a severe leg injury just before the 1948 London Olympics when he was in contention for Australian Olympic selection. Ken still holds three school sprinting records for the under 15 100 and 200 metres (1940) and under 16 200 metres (1941).
For many years Ken was a welcome visitor to the Scotch Main Oval where he coached numerous schoolboy sprinters. Ken was an active supporter of the Old Scotch Athletics Club and generously hosted many end-of-season award gala nights at his home in East Ivanhoe.
He enjoyed golf and was a talented A grade squash player, playing weekly up until the age of 70. Over a 35-year period Ken was a track judge at the Associated Public School Athletics Championships, and in 2003 was recognised by the APS for his many years of outstanding service.
Ken enjoyed catching up with his Scotch contemporaries at 1st XVIII reunion lunches at the MCG. In retirement Ken travelled with his wife Gloria, spent time at their Mount Martha beach home, swam, read, and enjoyed time with his family. Ken passed away peacefully after a brief illness at St Vincent's Hospital on 9 March 2014. He is warmly remembered and sadly missed as a generous, inspiring, thoughtful and caring man.1
