Sir Frederick Wolff Ogilvie - vida, obra e imagem

Postado por Alexandre Panosso Netto
Meu amigo Felix Tomillo Noguero, de Valladolid-Espanha, me alertou que existiam várias referências na Web sobre a vida e obra de F. W. Ogilvie, o autor do livro "The tourist movement". Além disso, indicou mais dois trabalhos de sua pena, quais sejam:
Ogilvie, Sir Frederick Wolff. (1948): The importance of travel as a factor in international trade. London: The British Travel Association.
Ogilvie, Sir Frederick Wolff. (1934): “Tourist traffic”. En Seligman, Edwin R. A.; and Johnson, Alvin (ed.). Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences. V. 14. Pp: 660-664. New York: Macmillan.

Abaixo está uma pintura de Ogilvie, que encontrei em http://www.flickr.com/photos/publicdetective/2732804439/sizes/o/in/photostream/

Ogilvie was a fellow of Trinity College, Oxford and lecturer in economics. In 1926 he was Chair to the Management School of Economics at Edinburgh University. He was one of the first economists to see the significance of tourism. In Economic Study (1933) he showed how more expenditure on tourism could bring about faster growth in that area. He became vice-chancellor of Queen's University, Belfast in 1934. He became BBC's second director-general from 1938 - 1942. He was principal of Jesus College, Oxford from 1942 until his death in 1949. He died in 1949 at Oxford, England.
Before joining the BBC, he was Professor of Political Economy and Vice-Chancellor of the Queen's University of Belfast. He became Principal of Jesus College, Oxford from 1944 until his death.
He had lost his left arm serving in the First World War.
