New Evidence on Allyn Youngs Style and Influence as a Teacher
AbstractThis paper publishes the hitherto unpublished correspondence between Allyn Abbott Youngâ€™s biographer Charles Blitch and 17 of Youngâ€™s former students or associates. Together with related biographical and archival material, the paper shows the way in which this adds to our knowledge of Youngâ€™s considerable influence as a teacher upon some of the twentieth centuryâ€™s greatest economists. The correspondents are as follows: James W Angell, Colin Clark, Arthur H Cole, Lauchlin Currie, Melvin G de Chazeau, Eleanor Lansing Dulles, Howard S Ellis, Frank W Fetter, Earl J Hamilton, Seymour S Harris, Richard S Howey, Nicholas Kaldor, Melvin M Knight, Bertil Ohlin, Geoffrey Shepherd, Overton H Taylor, and Gilbert Walker.
