Mackenzie, William Kenneth (1872–1952)

Lieut.-Colonel William Kenneth Seaforth Mackenzie, D.S.O., who was admitted to the New South Wales Bar in 1895, died last Tuesday. Only one other person, Sir Robert Garran, Q.C., had been in practice at the Bar for longer than Lieut. Colonel Mackenzie. Lieut.-Colonel Mackenzie was noted for his edition of Divorce Practice, a text book which is still the standard work in the matrimonial causes jurisdiction in N.S.W. Until a few months before his death he was editor of the N.S.W. Law Reports and Weekly Notes. Lieutenant-Colonel Mackenzie commanded the 19th Battalion of the 1st A.I.F. and saw service in Egypt, Gallipoli, and France.
