Dobb, Maurice Herbert

Dobb (1900-76) was educated at Charterhouse, at Pembroke College in Cambridge, and at the London School of Economics under Cannan . He returned to Cambridge in 1924 as a university lecturer. His career was undoubtedly slowed down by his being a communist (he joined the Communist Party in 1922): he acquired a fellowship at Trinity College only in 1948 and became reader in economics in 1959.
