Notes for Cyprian Theodosius OLUMIDE
Founded the Licensed Surveyors Association in Nigeria in 1934; this metamorphosed into the Land Surveyors Association of Nigeria in 1960, with Olumide as its first chairman. In 1966 the Association adopted the name of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors, and Olumide became its first president.

In appreciation of his service and leadership, the Institution made him Life President, and on his death in 1970 N.I.S. Council decided to immortalize his memory by instituting the Olumide Memorial Lecture series, the first of which was held in 1982. The Olumide Memorial Public Lecture is held every year in honor of late surveyor Cyprian T. Olumide, first president of N.I.S. and a pioneer of modern surveying in Nigeria.
