Lionel William Lyde, 1863-1947

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Lionel Lyde was an influential pioneer among British geographers, writing short textbooks for British schoolchildren during the 1890s and giving extension lectures at Glasgow and Oxford. After a period in school teaching, he accepted an invitation to occupy the new chair of economic geography at University College London, then the only geographer in the United Kingdom to hold professorial title. He presented his views vigorously in lectures and in textbooks, never failing to draw on anthropological and historical evidence to support his sometimes controversial ideas on human geography. - (HC)
