Although largely forgotten today, T. L. Donaldson (1795–1885) was one of the most distinguished early Presidents (1863–1865). He built relatively little but as an educator and architectural writer, he was immensely important. He was described by the Prince of Wales in 1879 as 'the father of the Institute and of the profession'. In 1842, he became the first Professor of Architecture at University College, London, where he strove to bring together the disciplines of architecture and engineering.
