Example text

H. Cunynghame, for example, to say nothing of Mary Paley), Jevons was perceptive enough to recognise the signs of exceptional merit in their much-unpublished teacher: already in October 1875 he was writing from his eyrie at 36 Parsonage Road, Withington, to propose Marshall as a substitute for him in London in the transitional years between Jevons' appointment to the Professorship at University College and his actual departure from Owens, Manchester. 45 It was clearly personality and promise, not publications, that most impressed Sidgwick and Jevons when they so enthusiastically sponsored Marshall for the Bristol posts.

3 There is loss as well as hope to be detected in Foxwell's repeated use of the word 'living'. Things might have been different had Jevons lived. As it was, however, the loss of J evons inevitably consolidated the hope that was associated with Marshall. Foxwell saw clearly what Marshall was worth. So did Jowett. Benjamin Jowett (1817-93) was Master of Balliol and as such a Governor of the University College. He used to stay with the Marshalls when visiting Bristol. According to Mary, he enjoyed Alfred's company and held him in high esteem: 'He enjoyed discussing economic questions with Alfred and would bring out his little notebook and would take down a remark that specially interested him.

If Alfred's sudden conversion to the mores of his father is surprising, however, then the unquestioning acceptance by Mary that her own career was over is no less so. H. M. Robertson met her when, cataloguing his books and papers for posterity and making the notes posthumously published as What I Remember (the what is, predictably enough, virtually synonymous with a particular whom), she had progressed from 'cossetting Alfred' to cossetting his memory. He found her self-denying service less than easy to understand: 1 confess it was a little surprising to reflect on how this obviously mentally alert and spiritually young and lively old person, who 28 Alfred Marshall's Mission clearly enjoyed the company of the young, could for so long have abandoned, as to speak, her own personality as a scholar and teacher in her own right, to become part nurse, part amanuensis, part subordinate research assistant, merely 'devilling' material for someone else to use, for a man who from all accounts, for all his genius, had become something of a valetudinarian, something of a recluse, something of an eccentric and, indeed, something of a domestic tyrant.
