After eleven years’ service in a bank, Lavington went into residence at Cambridge and – together with Dennis Robertson and Hubert Henderson – was among Keynes’s first students. After taking his degree in 1911, he returned to administrative work in the then new Labour Exchanges Department of the Board of Trade. Back in Cambridge in 1918, he was elected to a lectureship in economics which he held until his death.
