  G.M. Trevelyan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George Macaulay Trevelyan (February 16, 1876 – July 21, 1962), was an English historian, son of Sir George Otto Trevelyan and great-nephew of Thomas Macaulay, whose staunch liberal Whig principles he espoused in accessible works of literate narrative avoiding a consciously dispassionate analysis, that became old-fashioned during his long and productive career.
Trevelyan lectured at Cambridge until 1903 at which point he left academic life.
Trevelyan declined the Presidency of the British Academy but served as Chancellor of Durham University from 1950 to 1958.

Trevelyan family loyalties were royalist, so that during the Civil War and the Commonwealth they were under something of a cloud, but their allegiance paid off at the Restoration when they received the title of baronet from King Charles II.
Trevelyan men were historically-minded, with a tradition of participation in the forming of their country's opinions and the making of its decisions, and George enjoyed the talk.
George was the very welcome son, but I think Charles may have wanted him to be an intellectual or a politician, and it was clear he would be creative in a different way." He also remarks that George was temperamentally unsuited to be an historian or landowner, the other vocations at which Trevelyans excelled.

George’s face was thin and had grown a trifle thinner in the nearly year and a half that he had been at the House.
Trevelyan, who lived immediately next door, still wore his hair childishly long and was years removed from the sideburns and thin, reddish mustache that he was to grow as soon as he was physiologically capable of it.
