The Yeager Mystique: The Polymath as Teacher, Scholar and Colleague
For the historian of contemporary economic thought, the career of Leland B. Yeager has an undeniable fascination. His particular combination of pedagogic charisma, wide-ranging preoccupations and straight-forward scholarly style attracted to him many generations of students during the heyday of the political economy revolution taking place in Charlottesville in the 1960's and 70's, leading to a "Yeager Mystique." Student reminiscences and lecture notes, as well as Yeager's articles and books, provided source material to enable an assessment of Yeager, the polymath, placing him within the unique Virginia School tradition of political economy.
