John A. Milne, a Vice President of the Society, was awarded the Society’s Albert Medal in 1940 for services to Industrial Art. In 1932, when Chairman of the Council, he conceived and originated the Exhibition of British Art in Industry, held in 1935 in collaboration with the Royal Academy. This was the first exhibition of its kind for which no charge for space was required, the finance being guaranteed by the Society’s Fellows, allowing independent selection of exhibits on their artistic merits.
