Donald MacKenzie was a former World Champion archer who represented the United States.

MacKenzie was the first non-European to compete at the World Archery Championships in 1933 at the Ranelagh Club, London, when he won the event, drawing attention and admiration with his unique style.[1][2] He did not defend his world title (United States archers did not regularly compete at the World Archery Championships until after the Second World War, and first sent a full team in 1957), but remained an influential and successful competitor at national competitions.[3][4]
