MARSHALL, ALFRED (1842-       ), English economist (see 17.770), produced a memorandum for the Government on the Fiscal Policy of International Trade in 1908. In 1919 he published Industry and Trade (vol. 1., 4th ed. 1921). All his work since the publication of his first book in 1879 was done in conjunction with his wife Mary, daughter of the Rev. Thomas Paley, whom he married in 1877. She was one of the first women students at Cambridge, and was highly commended for her work in the Moral Sciences tripos in 1874. In 1875 she became resident lecturer at Newnham Hall, when it was first opened under Miss A. J. Clough, resigning this post on her marriage.
