He had occupied that position in 1893, when the Bank suspended, reconstructed and reopened. Vaizey, John (later Lord), 1929-1984 (No. 35, 1974): Economist. For more than a decade from his mid-teens Vaizey suffered with osteomyelitis, and even thereafter he was often in considerable pain. That did not stop him excelling at Cambridge and being appointed a Lecturer in Economics and Economic History at Oxford (1955-66), before accepting the Chair of Economics at Brunel University.

He has been co-editor of the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management and an Associate Editor of the Journal of International Economics. Copland, Professor (later Sir) Douglas Berry, 1894-1971 (No. 9, 1921): Economist, administrator and diplomat. Copland, a New Zealander, was appointed a Lecturer in the University of Tasmania in 1917 and Professor in 1920. He was a Professor in the University of Melbourne from 1924 until 1945. During World War II, he was Prices Commissioner. Copland was the first Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University, the first Principal of the Australian Administrative Staff College and founder of the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia.
