John Cadell Windeyer, Professor of Obstetrics since 1924, was Dean of the Faculty from 1930 to 1931 and ex officio a Fellow of Senate in the same years. Stepping into the role on the retirement of David Arthur Welsh, Windeyer did not initiate any radical changes during his time as Dean due to his many commitments outside of the University, but he was responsible for the appointments of Charles George Lambie and (Sir) Harold Robert Dew as Bosch Professors of Medicine and Surgery respectively. He was succeeded by (Sir) Charles Bickerton Blackburn in 1932.[1]
