Lloyd, William Forster (1794–1852)
Lloyd was Drummond Professor of Political Economy at the University of Oxford from 1832 to 1837. During those years he delivered a series of lectures which display marked originality and willingness to differ from the current canons of received wisdom among political economists. Twelve of the lectures were published. The manuscripts of the remaining lectures, approximately 24 in number, have not been found (Romano 1977).
