About Author

Lynden Livingston Macassey

Lynden Livingston Macassey was a barrister and labor lawyer. Lynden Macassey was born on June 14, 1876, in Carrickfergus, Larne, County Antrim, as the son of engineer and attorney Luke Livingston Macassey. He was educated at Bedford School and Trinity College in Dublin. The Middle Temple called him to the Bar in 1899. Between 1901 to 1909, he taught economics and law at the London School of Economics. During World War I, he became embroiled in industrial unrest among munitions workers on the River Clyde and co-authored a report with Lord Balfour of Burleigh in 1915. His proposals were incorporated into the Munitions of War (Amendment) Act of 1916. In 1916, he negotiated agreements establishing joint committees of employers and shop stewards on the River Clyde. He did, however, back the controversial deportation from Glasgow of militant labour leader David Kirkwood. In 1922, Macassey was appointed as a labour assessor for the British government on the Permanent Court of International Justice in The Hague. His seminal work, Labour Policy: False and True, was also released in 1922. Macassey died in London on February 23, 1963.
