George David Norman Worswick 1916–2001

Show Summary Details


David Worswick dedicated his life to economics and the analysis of economic policy, which resulted in several honours. In 1975 he received a D.Sc. from City University and was elected a Fellow of the Academy in 1979 — and from 1986/7 to 1988/9 he served as Chairman of its Section 9. In 1981 he was awarded the CBE. He also had a lively and fulfilling domestic life. He married Sylvia Walsh in 1940 and had three children. Their Oxford house was a home from home for many a student. He represented, not only the intellectual commitment of a generation of British economists, but also just about all the best features of a man in public life in Britain in his time.
