Fritz Machlup, professor of economics and international finance, was born in Wiener-Neustadt, Austria on December 15, 1902. Machlup received his doctorate under Ludwig von Mises at the University of Vienna in 1923 and had already published four books and over 150 articles before 1935. Fleeing Hitler and the National Socialists, Machlup first arrived in the United States in September 1933 on a student visa. He was offered a one-year teaching position at Harvard University in 1934 and formally emigrated to the U.S. in 1935. Machlups distinguished teaching career included the University at Buffalo, NY (1935-1947), Johns Hopkins University (1947-1960), and Princeton University (1960-1971), as well as visiting professorships at universities in Europe, Japan and Australia. In addition to his teaching and research activities, Machlup was the founder in 1963 of the Bellagio Group, a collaborative of scholars from the United States and Italy, which acted as consultants to the U.S. Department of the Treasury during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Fritz Machlup died in Princeton, New Jersey on January 30, 1983.
