MARSHALL, Mary Paley was born in 1850 in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.
Great-granddaughter of William Paley and wife of Alfred Marshall, her abilities as an economist deserve mention in their own right. As the first woman lecturer in economics at Cambridge and joint-author of a good economic text, she might have had an outstanding career. However, on marriage to Marshall she submerged her career in his.
Lector, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom, 1875, then Universities Bristol, Oxford and Cambridge.
