b.1952 from Ireland

agronomist, agricultural and environmental scientist, was born in Donaghadee, County Down on 15 January 1952, the only son of Fred and May McAdam.  He attended Ballywalter Primary School and Coleraine Academical Institution and was an undergraduate at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) from 1969 to 1974, undertaking degrees in botany and honours in agricultural botany (1st).


Agronomist, agricultural and...

McAdam’s first encounter with the Falklands came in 1969 when, as a young university student, he bought a second-hand copy of the Uttermost Part of the Earth by Lucas Bridges in a local church bazaar. He was absolutely fascinated by the story and subsequently read up more on the Falklands. Since then, he counts himself extremely fortunate to have spent many memorable days staying and working on Keppel Island, particularly with good friends Sam and Hay Miller, and subsequently was privileged to enjoy the friendship and collaboration of the Goodall family, staying several times at Estancias Harberton and Viamonte on Tierra del Fuego.  

In 1975 while undertaking a PhD, he saw an advert for a pasture agronomist position in the Falkland Islands. Having, by then, a deep interest in islands and hill farming and being well read and informed about the Falklands (he had written to Chief Secretary Doug Morrison in 1972 about the prospects for working in the Islands - the letter was still on file when he arrived four years later) he applied, more in hope than expectation, as the position required applicants with much more experience than he had. However he was successful in the competition and, in January 1976, he and his wife Sally neé Gibson (1954-2013) set off for the Falklands. It was a time of increased tension between Britain and Argentina, the SHACKLETON Survey Team were in the islands. McAdam had the privilege of accompanying the team on some of their agriculture-related visits and later in his posting was involved in drawing up vegetation maps to calculate stock carrying capacity and hence assist in drawing up farm boundaries as part of the process of sub-division.


Cutting peat in 1977

The history of agricultural research and development in the Falklands is a long one – going back as far as Governor MOODY and various individuals in between who had reported on and carried out trials of one sort or another. Probably the most significant visit of all was that funded by the then Overseas Development Administration in 1969. A team of agricultural specialists led by Tom Davies produced a major report which recommended the establishment of a permanent agricultural research unit in the Islands which would have the capacity to conduct field trials on which to base their advice. One of their main tasks was to test the application of emerging research carried out by the UK’s Hill Farming Research Organisation in Scotland. Their work, particularly on integrating sheep nutritional requirements with pasture quality and growth into what became known as the ‘two pasture system of hill sheep management’ was a huge advance in hill sheep farming in the UK and became the central core of the research unit established in the Falklands – the Grassland Trials Unit (GTU). The unit’s task was also to quantify the resource and to research ways of increasing productivity, largely through the introduction of developments in animal nutrition, native pasture ecology, reseeding and hill sheep grazing systems currently being implemented in the British Isles. In 1974 Campbell Kerr was appointed as leader of the GTU and McAdam was appointed in December 1975 as Pasture Agronomist for 3 years. The GTU was located in what was the Met Office, later with refurbishment and additions to become the building that houses the current Department of Agriculture.

McAdam fully immersed himself in life in the Falklands in the 1970s. He loved the challenge of camp driving and the independence and community involvement which the Falklands gave him and his family. He soon struck up a friendship with Falkland Islander Owen Summers, then a young Met Officer who shared the office with the GTU team. Owen showed him how to cut peat, carve up a mutton carcass, what to grow in his garden and he and wife Veronica led the McAdams on some great Land Rover expeditions around remote corners of East Falkland. They remained friends for life, both Owen and Veronica sadly passing away in recent years. For a young scientist McAdam had the great feeling that everything he tried, did and measured was actually new and could be used in developing a better future for farming in the Islands. He felt a great pioneering spirit in all that he did, particularly benefitting from being able to travel around the full range of farms.  He made many close friends in the Islands and enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with them where possible on his many visits to the Falklands after 1983.


Deciding where to cut a sample plot...

He had been a keen soccer player at university and greatly enjoyed the opportunity to play in the local league in Stanley. He was goalkeeper for Redsox over two seasons and was fortunate to be able to play for the national team on several occasions. According to the then veteran Stanley manager Doley Williams the only reason for not automatically selecting him more was that he clearly made up for lack of height by a reckless fearlessness in goal which was likely to result in him being carried off well before the end of any match! He was also able to keep up his interest in sub-aqua diving by participating in some memorable dives with friends Vernon Steen and Owen Summers. McAdam and visiting student geologist Dave Roberts planned and executed an expedition in 1978 to explore the bottom of the Black Tarn on Mt Usborne. This dispelled local myths that it was either bottomless or that its level went up and down with the tide and secured a valuable sediment core from the bottom which helped date the duration of the last ice age and subsequent post glacial vegetation history of the Falklands (see 1981 Falkland Islands Journal).

He, Sally and daughter Emma Jane (b 1977 in Stanley) left the Falklands in July 1978. He adapted his basic short wheel-base Land Rover for cramped living, had it shipped across to Buenos Aires (on the Bahia Buen Succeso) and, in company with Dr Derek Cox and his family spent six months driving up through the highways and byways of southern South America. 


Delivering the Falkland Islands...

On return to Northern Ireland, McAdam was appointed Hill Land Research Officer within the Department of Agriculture and in 1982 he was also appointed (concurrent position) as a lecturer in agricultural botany at QUB. In 1983 he was asked by the then United Kingdom Falkland Islands Trust (UKFIT) to revisit the Islands as their consultant to assess how the Trust could support FIG in particular areas. Initially these were biological husbandry, expanding into seaweed use, tree planting for shelter, Tussac grass establishment and native pasture management. More recently he contributed to projects on the potential impact of climate change in the Falklands and the mapping of the distribution and extent of soil and peat in the Islands. This started him on what became annual visits to the Falklands working closely with the Department of Agriculture, assisting in many areas of the agronomy programme and continuing research interests in the Falklands combining support from UKFIT and his position in QUB to encourage several significant postgraduate studentships on mainly grassland and environment-related topics. He was appointed honorary professor in the University of Magallanes in Punta Arenas in 1995 and encouraged the sharing of information and technology between the Magallanes region and the Falklands through student exchanges and research visits. 

McAdam considers himself very fortunate in having experienced life in the Falklands over 46 years, through the most significant event in camp life in the islands - farm sub-division - and through what he still looks back on as the darkest moment in the colony in those days - the sad events surrounding the Beaver crash in 1976 and the death of Ian CAMPBELL. McAdam played a part in the subsequent search and recovery operation, which had a lasting effect on him, and, on reflection, bonded him with the local community. He and Owen Summers felt it important that the full story behind the official version of the crash and subsequent search should be told. Following detailed research and talking to those who were still around and had been involved, they documented the story in the 2009 issue of the Falkland Islands Journal.


Investiture of OBE in 2014 by Prince...

He always had a deep interest in local history and from the mid-1980s assisted the late Sydney MILLER in editing and producing the Falkland Islands Journal which had been founded by the Colonial Secretary, Tommy THOMPSON in 1967. In 1974 Miller had rescued the Journal from virtual demise. McAdam was deeply honoured when, in 1990, Miller handed over the editorship of the Journal to him. The 31 issues he has produced and the path he has taken to develop the quality, reputation and scope of the Journal, particularly its alignment with the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust, have given him great satisfaction and have brought him into contact with some of the most interesting people he has been privileged to know.  

He has published 31 refereed scientific papers on the Falklands and many other papers on all aspects of his involvement in the Islands - many of them with students and colleagues he has worked with over the years (see Bibliography attached). He has co-authored a book on the Upland Goose with Ron SUMMERS and on Wildflowers of the Falkland Islands with Tom Davies. He regularly gives illustrated talks and lectures on all aspects of the Falkland Islands. In 1982, through the Extra-Mural Department in QUB, he ended up having to present a 10-weekly talk series on the Falklands at four different venues in Northern Ireland, a task which sorely tested his photographic collection and powers of recall!


A good friend of the Falklands

McAdam sits on the academic selection committee of the Shackleton Scholarship Fund and is a committee member of the Friends of the Museum and Jane Cameron National Archives. 

He was elected Fellow of the Royal Agricultural Societies (2005) and awarded the OBE (in 2014) for his contribution to agriculture and research in the Falkland Islands. Since retirement from his government post in 2018, he has continued his active involvement in the Falklands, contributing to research projects, acting as consultant to the Falkland Islands Trust and editing the Falkland Islands Journal. He is the keeper of a considerable archive of books, papers and other publications on the Falklands. 

Jim McAdam has two children by his first marriage - Emma Jane (b 1977) and Thomas (b 1980). He married Geraldine McDonald in 2010 and has continued an active interest in all aspects of life in the Falkland Islands.
