Donald Macadie, M.B.E., the inventor of the original DC multi-range amps-volts-ohms meter, which later became known as the Avometer, died at the age of 83. After his retirement from the Post Office in 1933, he devoted a considerable part of his time to the activities of the Automatic Coil Winder and Electrical Equipment Company which he helped to form in 1923 to manufacture the Macadie coil winder and the Avometer.
