David Champernowne died in Devon on 19 August 2000 at the age of88.† Though he was not directly associated with the Cambridge Journal of Economics, his major contributions both belong to and serve to extend the approach to economics which the journal is dedicated to preserve and advance. We wish therefore to record our appreciation of his life and work. Champernowne was born in Oxford on 9 July 1912. His family roots, though, were in Devon. He was to hold posts at the LSE, Cambridge and Oxford; indeed, he held chairs in both ‘ancient universities’. His undergraduate college was King’s. He read mathematics (he was supervised with Alan Turing who became a close friend and with whom he was to design and construct a chess computer, the ‘Turochamp’, which was capable of beating bright beginners).
