Lord Ralph Harris, Founder President, Institute of Economic Affairs
Lord Harris was born in London in 1924 and graduated from Cambridge in 1947. He lectured at St. Andrews University until 1957. He then became the General Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs and was joined in 1958 by Arthur Seldon as Editorial Director. Together they wrote studies of advertising, hire purchase, state and private welfare, and other applications of classical liberal analysis to public policy. They helped rehabilitate the classical liberal tradition of market microanalysis. In 1979, he was made a life peer by Margaret Thatcher, and he sits on the cross-benches as Lord Harris of High Cross.
