Professor Walter Tessier Newlyn (1915-2002) was a British economist and educator, known for his work on monetary theory and with African nations, especially Uganda. In 1945 Newlyn was accepted as a mature student to read economics at LSE and by 1948 he was an assistant lecturer at the University of Leeds (UoL), to which he remained affiliated throughout his career, despite working extensively in Africa. From 1967 (until his retirement in 1978) Newlyn was Professor of Developmental Economics and in 1964 had founded UoL’s African Studies Unit, now LUCAS (Loxley, 2003).
