Reference work entry


Ingram’s whole professional career was spent at Trinity College, Dublin, of which he became a Fellow in 1846. He subsequently held a remarkable variety of offices there – Professor of Oratory (1852) and English Literature (1855), Regius Professor of Greek (1866), Librarian (1879) and Vice-Provost (1898) – but was never a professional teacher of political economy.
