John Storey Junior was a young man full of drive and energy. While studying Mechanical Engineering at RMIT, known then as the Melbourne Technical College, he helped found the Student Representative Council. He acted as its first President and lobbied for the establishment of a central library. His studies were cut short when he was diagnosed with leukaemia and died in 1947, aged just 22. His father, industrialist Sir John Storey, died eight years later but ensured his son would not be forgotten by the students of the college. Sir John left a sizeable bequest to RMIT for the establishment of a fund for scholarships to commemorate the life of his son.
