'LSE Material on the history of the School' LSE Archives ref R(S.R)1101, p.123): Florence Mare on Mr McKillop Mr J.M. McKillop was the Chief Librarian all the time I was at the LSE. He was rather a silent man, but most helpful in finding the things you needed., appreciating how precious was the little spare time of evening students. Both he and his wife were kind to us ?lodgers? in London and invited us to their home. Lady S. Simon on Mr Mckillop There was also the Duo Decimo Society run by Mr McKillop, the librarian, membership of which being so limited was highly coveted.

Dr Hilda Ormsby, c1910

Description

Department of Geography 'Dr Hilda Ormsby died on October 23rd 1973, a few days before her 96th birthday. She was the country's longest living geographer, for she had been a student of and then assistant to Sir Halford Mackinder, one of the founders of modern geography, a former director of the School, and its first Professor of Geography. Indeed Mackinder tried out on her a draft of his famous book "Democratic Ideals and Reality."Mackinder's successor as Professor was Rodwell Jones, brother of Hilda Ormsby, and the brother-sister partnership is thought to have been the only one on a British department of geography. In 1931 she became one of the very few heography holders of the D.Sc (Econ) and was appointed Reader in 1932. Although she retired in 1940 she gave some lectures in the next two sessions whilst the School was in Cambridge. In both wars she served with Naval Intelligence. During the first she worked on terrain analysis, and in the second helped to prepare handbooks on France. She was elected an Honorary Fellow of the School in 1962...' R.J.

Professor Arthur John, c1960s

Description

Professor of Economic History From his obituary by Walter M. Stern, in the LSE Magazine, June 1979, No57, p.8 'Arthur John (1915-1978) had touched LSE's life at many points. After graduating there in 1936 with first-class honours, he went on to Cambridge to take a Ph.D. degree under Clapham, just before the war. On his return from service with the RAF, he embarked on an administrative career, acting as Assistant Registrar at LSE during 1946-47, before moving to Nottingham University as Registrar. But he switched to academic teaching and rejoined LSE as Lecturer in Economic History in 1949, becoming Reader (1954) and Professor (1964).'

Morris Ginsberg c1930s

Description

Photo given to LSE by Ginsberg's former neighbour Evelyn Osterweil Morris Ginsberg: An Obituary (LSE Magazine, December 1970, No 40) ? by Donald G. MacRae ?The death of Morris Ginsberg at the age of 81 does much more than sever a link with LSE going back in one form or another to 1911. Although physically frail in his latter years his mind was as powerful, as clear, as interested and as sceptical as ever down until the time of his death, an he was busily engaged in the planning of a new volume of essays. For long he has been the greatest British sociologist. During many years he had carried the burden of sociology in this country almost alone. What the subject has of rigour, order, clarity, scholarship, creative doubt and humane concern in 1970 is the legacy, above all of Ginsberg. He was born in 1899 in one of the smaller communities of the Russian Empire. Coming to England as a lad he was fired by a faith in this country largely through reading a Hebrew translation of George Eliot?s Daniel Deronda ? he always insisted that George Eliot read better in Hebrew, a thought that might have pleased that author. He performed brilliantly in philosophy at University College London, and became an authority on Melebranche ? he published a translation of the Entretiens of 1688 in 1923. British critical realism attracted him and dominated the philosophical concerns that continued through his life. By 1911 he was drawn to LSE by Hobhouse and the new liberal sociology of Westermarck. The Manchester Guardian circle of these years deeply influenced his political outlook. In 1915 along with Hobhouse and Wheeler he published what is still a classic of comparative and statistical sociology. The Material Culture and Social Institutions of the Simpler Peoples. (Those who think of him as an essentially non-quantitative sociology should also remember his remarkable pioneering work of the 1920?s on social mobility.) After war service ? he was a sergeant engaged on the dangerous business of bringing ammunition-laden mule-teams up to the line on the Western Front ? he returned to academic life in London, moving from University College (the Fellowship of which was one of his most prized honours) fully to LSE where in due course and one would think inevitably became the Martin White Professor of Sociology in succession to Hobhouse in 1929. He held this chair until 1954, but taught actively at the school even after retirement. During these years he did important work in social psychology and in 1934 published his Sociology which in its brief compass, its learning in the European tradition of the subject, its succinct force, remains a classic. The crises of the 30?s actively involved him in the tasks of rescue and re-settlement of refugee scholars. When the School was evacuated to Cambridge during the second German war he carried with a success that was to leave him exhausted in 1945 an almost incredible range and burden of teaching. Yet on return to London he re-established and extended the LSE Department on the shoulders of which then rested the total responsibility for the development of sociology in Britain. In all this the support and happiness of his marriage to Ethel Street made his tasks possible. Her long and tragic illness and death was to cloud his old age. His capacity for friendship, for kindness and concern was great and discriminating. He was shy and reserved, even bleak in manner, yet he was at heart warm and eminently practical. He did not fuss, so people under-estimated his human, scholarly and administrative achievements. With difficulty I persuaded him to publish the three volumes of his Essays in Sociology and Social Philosophy (1956-61). Their success delighted him. Their importance is not exhausted: spare in style, always clear, to many people they have seemed essentially critical and exegetical. But this is not the case. Too scrupulous in his debt to Hobhouse and Westermarck he concealed his own originality and wealth of analysis. He made much dangerous nonsense henceforth impossible. He greatly advanced a comparative and institutional sociology at once creative and highly disciplined. His concern with the quality of social life and his sense of rigour made him in my judgement almost the only social philosopher of our age. The influence of his teaching, he was an almost perfect if austere lecturer, has been international. His rationalism, his short term pessimism and longer term hope annoyed the passionate and impatient. Yet they gained from his wise stoicism and deep concern. His humour was private and not always kind, but it was without malice. (How, he reflected, could Malinowski have found more to say about the Trobriands than Gibbon on the fall of Rome?) His loyalty to those he loved never faltered. There is so much that one has no room to say here about him: suffice it to establish that he was one of those who made his subject out of stubborn fact and complexity, made the LSE both unique and great among institutions of higher learning, and who helped his friends and students to endure.?

Graham Wallas, c1920s

Description

Professor of Political Science 1914-1923 Extracts from ?Portraits from the Past: Graham Wallas: 1858-1932,? by W.A. Robson from LSE Magazine, May 1971, No41, p.5 ?The son of an Anglican clergyman, he went to Shrewsbury and then to Corpus Christi College, Oxford, where he read classics. His first post was as a schoolmaster at Highgate School but he left after a few years on a question of religious conformity. He then became an extension lecturer in London University in 1890. He joined the Fabian Society in its early days and wrote one of the original Fabian Essays. As a friend and colleague of the Webbs and Bernard Shaw he played a leading part in the creation and development of LSE from the day of its conception in August 1894, at the farm near Godalming where the four were staying, until the end of his active life. He was a lecturer at the School from 1895 and later became its first Professor of Political Science?Wallas was much greater as teacher than as a writer. As H.G Wells remarked in his Autobiography, ?the London School of Economics will testify how much the personal Graham Wallas outdid the published Graham Wallas?there is scarcely any considerable figure among the younger generation of publicists who does not owe something to his slow, fussy, mannered, penetrating and inspiring counsels.? Of his own debt Wells wrote ?I cannot measure justly the influence of the disinterested life he led on my own. It was I think very considerable.? Many of us who were his students and friends feel a similar debt. No small part of Wallas? influence was due to his lovable personality and the spirit of benevolence and altruism which shone through him at all times.? Excerpt from reminiscences of former staff. 'LSE Material on the history of the School' LSE Archives ref R(S.R)1101, p.119: Florence Mare on Graham Wallas, 'Of all the lecturers I think the most beloved was that great man Graham Wallas. He was a born teacher: his simplicity of illustration, his enthusiasm for his subject, his profound analysis of causes made a deep impression on all who attended his lectures in political science. Essays set by him had to be forthcoming no matter which others got left undone! On the completion of a course of lectures which he gave many years afterwards at B'ham Univ I remember him standing stock still, dumfounded at the thunderous burst of applause that came from the audience. Then he softly murmured 'thank you.' IMAGELIBRARY/272 Persistent URL: archives.lse.ac.uk/dserve.exe?dsqServer=lib-4.lse.ac.uk&a...

Professor A.W.H (Bill) Phillips

Description

Extracts from ?The Phillips Machine Project? by Nicholas Bar, LSE Magazine, June 1988, No75, p.3 A.W. H. ?Bill? Phillips is known worldwide as the originator of the Phillips Curve. Less well known is the remarkable man he was personally, and his extraordinary route to academic prominence via what came to be called the Phillips Machine. Trained as an electrical engineer in his native New Zealand in the 1930s, he caught the travel bug and took up an engineering job in the Australian outback, where he also earned money by running a cinema and hunting crocodiles. He reached London in 1938 via the Trans-Siberian railway and joined the RAF at the outbreak of war. He was captured in Java and spent most of the war in a Japanese POW camp, where he learned Chinese and some Russian from fellow prisoners. Back in Britain he took the BSc (Econ) 1946-49, special subject sociology. He developed a great interest in economics?and like many of his generation, became very caught up with Keynesian theory. Though fascinated he found the Keynesian model hard going. With Walter Newlyn (an undergraduate contemporary, later Professor of Economics at Leeds University) to help with the economic theory, he fell back on his engineering training. He saw that money stocks could be represented as tanks of water, and monetary flows by water circulating round plastic tubes. With a grant of 100 (obtained with Newlyn?s help) he spent the summer of 1949 in a garage in Croydon ?living on air? as James Meade was later to put it, working on a hydraulic representation of the Keynesian model. In the machine he constructed, the circular flow of income was represented by water being pumped round a series of clear plastic tubes, with outflows representing savings, taxes and imports, and inflows representing investment, government spending and exports. The model had three tanks representing the stock of money, one for transaction balances and one for foreign-held sterling balances. The whole system determined the level of income, the rate of interest, imports, exports and the exchange to an accuracy (astonishing at the time) of +two per cent. The time path of income and the other variables was traced out by plotter pens making it possible to analyse the quantitative effects of economic policy. The machine, in the jargon, was a hydraulic representation of an open economy IS-LM model with an explicit underlying dynamic structure. It was this very Heath Robinson prototype which, with the enthusiastic support of James Meade (then Professor of Commerce at the School), Phillips demonstrated to Lionel Robbins? seminar in November 1949. Those attending gazed in wonder at this large (7ft high x 5ft wide x 3ft deep) ?thing? in the middle of the room. Phillips, chain smoking, paced back and forth explaining it in a heavy New Zealand drawl, in the process giving one of the best lectures on Keynes that anyone in the audience had ever heard. Then he switched the machine on. And it worked! According to Lord Robbins? recollections, ?there was income dividing itself into consumption and saving?Keynes and Robertson need never have quarrelled if they had had the Phillips Machine before them??Phillips was made an Assistant Lecturer in Economics in 1950, Lecturer 1951, Reader 1954, and Tooke Professor of Economic Science and Statistics in 1958 (the year his Phillips Curve paper was published). He took up a Chair at the Australian National University in 1967 and, having suffered a major stroke, retired to Auckland in 1970, where he died five years later aged 60, mourned by many friends for personal as much for professional reasons.?
