Professor John Daniel was an internationally respected researcher and academic who first made his mark as a young student activist, but he continued to be an inspiring mentor throughout his life.

Born in Pietermaritzburg, he earned his BA in political science from the University of Natal in 1964 while serving two terms as the president of the National Union of South African Students (Nusas).

Daniel’s invitation to United States politician Robert F. Kennedy to visit South Africa in 1966 forced him into exile in 1968.
