Example text

285–6), then Cambridge Professor of Psychology and Marshall’s colleague in the 30 Alfred Marshall Moral Sciences, provides yet another account of Marshall’s intellectual progress: I would not have you think me indifferent to mental science. About as much of my time since I came to Cambridge in 1861 has been given to it as to mathematics. My zeal for economics would never have got me out of bed at five o’clock in the morning, to make my own coffee and work for three hours before breakfast and pupils in mathematics; but philosophy did that, till I became ill and my right foot swelled to double its normal size.

Henry Sidgwick, a Fellow at Trinity and an external examiner at the school, was one of these new friends. He probably introduced Marshall in turn to Clifford and Moulton who, as Mary Paley recorded, were his two greatest friends when he became a Fellow at St John’s. Another Johnian, called Moss, was part of a group of seven young Fellows at St John’s who met regularly together for Shakespeare readings. In addition, Marshall joined the Eranus Society in these years. This was a discussion group including Sidgwick, Venn, Fawcett and Clifford among its members, the first three of them teachers at Cambridge in the Moral Sciences.

What is known is that he was a brilliant student. He won the school’s chief mathematics prize in 1861, and earlier secured mathematics prizes in 1857 as well as very high rankings in the 1859 and 1860 examinations. In 1854, he won a special prize for coming second in Latin grammar and in 1861 shared a special essay prize offered by the headmaster. The overall quality of his school performance is indicated by the fact he became third monitor, that is, third in the school’s order of merit. This achievement conferred special privileges, including training in the art of public speaking.
