In 1976, after twenty years of service with ASIS, Kennison was appointed director-general of the service on the recommendation of Justice Robert Hope, who at the time was conducting a Royal Commission into Australia’s intelligence services.


In 1956, Kennison was recruited to the Australian Secret Intelligence Service, having been offered the role in no small part due to his war record and investigative experience during the Morotai and Ambon trials.


Kennison was discharged from the army on 5 April 1946. He returned to Melbourne, where he spent ten years working in the retail sector, eventually managing the drapery and department store Hicks, Atkinson & Sons on Collins Street.


In 1943, then at the rank of captain, Kennison was court-martialled over an incident where he was in charge of a country camp of draft recruits. On 19 November 1943, the recruits were moved from one camp to another to be X-rayed, and the prosecution alleged that Kennison has not ensured the supervision of the recruits by himself or other officers, resulting in rowdy behaviour and possible consumption of liquor. In December, the court-martial found Kennison not guilty of the charges of not keeping the camp in a proper state of cleanliness, and not maintaining discipline among the draft.


Kennison enlisted in the Second Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in 1939, and served as a gunner in Australia and the South West Pacific Area.


Kennison was the son of Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Kennison of Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross. He was educated at Melbourne Church of England Grammar School, matriculating in 1937 and enrolling at the University of Melbourne. While at Melbourne, he obtained a half-blue in rifle shooting, but did not complete his studies due to the outbreak of World War II.


Ian James Stodart Kennison CBE (19 December 1920 – May 2000) was an Australian intelligence officer, soldier and public servant, who was Director-General of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service from 1975 to 1981.
