Angus Maddison, Emeritus Professor at the Faculty of Economics at the University of Groningen.

Born in 1926 in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, Maddison attended the University of Cambridge as an undergraduate. After attending McGill University and Johns Hopkins University as a graduate student, he decided not to pursue a Ph.D. and returned to the United Kingdom to teach for a year at the University of St. Andrews. In 1953, he joined the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC), and afterwards became Head of the OEEC Economics Division. In 1963, when the OEEC became the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Maddison became Assistant Director of the Economic Development Division. Soon thereafter, he left the OECD, and spent the next 15 years in a series of consulting appointments during which he returned to the OECD for four years. In 1978, he joined Groningen University and remained there until his retirement. He is the author of many works of historical economic analysis, including "" and several other reference books on the same topic.

Angus Maddison received a royal decoration as Commander in the Netherlands Order of Orange Nassau as he turned 80, [ [http://www.rug.nl/Corporate/nieuws/maddison 113a - Royal Decoration for Angus Maddison ] ] and in October 2007 Maddison received an honorary doctorate at Hitotsubashi University, Japan.
