G.H. Tupling (1883-1962): Pioneer of Regional Economic History in the North West1

Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire (2020), 169, (1), 107–126.

Abstract

The Economic History of Rossendale (Manchester, 1927) deserves to be more widely recognised as one of the very first examples of a new kind of history. This article examines the historiographical context in which G.H. Tupling (1883-1962) came to write his book, linking him with the early growth of economic history as a subject at the University of Manchester under George Unwin and with another great historian of the time, R.H. Tawney. It goes on to analyse and assess Tupling’s achievement and enduring legacy.
