Either is permissible :-)
HOWEVER, I am delighted to take this opportunity to obfuscate further by
insisting that strictly it should M'Intosh, without the 'c' or the 'ac'
(check a few of his papers and see for yourselves - mostly it's M'Intosh).
When he died his obituary in The Times was titled "Professor M'Intosh, the
Doyen of Marine Zoology", but the New York Times had the more telegraphic
approach with "Prof. MacIntosh, Scientist, Dies, 92"
The definitive entry in Dict. Nat. Biog. is as M'Intosh.
