John Francis Dynon (1913 -1984) MA (Oxon); LLB (Melb); Barrister & Solicitor. John's papers included a testimonial from the late Sir Ian Clunies Ross: 'Mr Dynon is a man of wide interests with a high sense of public duty which has led him to devote much time and energy to numerous worthwhile causes and, in particular, I might cite the success which attended his efforts to develop the Malvern Branch of the United Nations Association. In this he has exhibited his capacity for originality of thought, initiative and energy.' John was the founding president of the Association for the Defence of the Family. In this role he organised the petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in 1960 praying for the disallowance of the 'separation' ground in the Matrimonial Causes Act 1959. He was well known and highly regarded for his work in assisting immigrants and in particular reuniting families. For this work he was honoured by the Italian Government (1967) with award of Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
