Admin History Professor Archibald Duncan Campbell, Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Dundee, was a graduate from the University of Glasgow in 1945 and lectured there from 1945 to 1955. He was appointed as the first incumbent of the Bonar Chair of Applied Economics at Queen's College, Dundee, in 1955 and also became the first Dean of the first Faculty of Social Sciences in a Scottish University.

This work included his membership of the Fleck Committee on the Fishing Industry in 1959 to 1960 and the Scottish Economic Council 1967-1970. He was also a member of various arbitration bodies of enquiry in labour matters. In recognition of this service he was awarded the CBE in 1972.
