Reference work entry


A Cambridge mathematician who dabbled briefly in economics, Berry was born on 28 May 1862 in Croydon and died on 15 August 1929 in Cambridge. Entering King’s College, Cambridge, in 1881, he was Senior Wrangler in the Mathematical Tripos of 1885 and became a Fellow of King’s in 1886. After extension lecturing, he returned permanently to Cambridge in 1889. Thereafter, apart from administering Cambridge extension lecturing from 1891 to 1895, he devoted himself to King’s and the teaching of mathematics, highly regarded but publishing little.
