Mummery, Albert Frederick (1855–1895)
Co-author with J.A. Hobson of the Physiology of Industry (1889), Mummery was also a famous mountaineer who wrote a book on climbing in the Alps and the Caucasus and died in the Himalayas in 1895. According to Hobson’s own account (Confessions of an Economic Heretic, pp. 29–30), it was Mummery who set him on the path to intellectual heresy; considering that Hobson’s later economic writings may in many ways be regarded as a development of the theme established in the Physiology of Industry, this is a considerable achievement.
