  Lionel Robbins
Lionel Robbins was a peculiar Englishman in the economics world of the 1920s for a very simple reason: he was not a Marshallian but rather a follower of Jevons and Wicksteed.
Robbins was initially opposed to Keynes's General Theory.
Indeed, Robbins always saw his L.S.E. as a bulwark against Cambridge, whether it was populated by Marshallians or Keynesians.

Robbins was a key influence in the development of economics at LSE during the 1930s, and his influence and involvement outside LSE was substantial.

 A History of Economic Thought: The LSE Lectures | Book Reviews | EH.Net
Robbins loved the discipline of economics itself, and the lectures reflect the gusto with which he had spent his life pursuing its mastery.
Robbins often makes asides in the lectures about the rarity of a particular text that he has brought to the lecture hall to read from that day, and he also talks about the many pamphlets and books that he helped to have reprinted through the London School of Economics or the Royal Economic Society.
Robbins tells his version of the approach to these desiderata from a unique perspective as he was, for instance, well read in the German Historicists (younger and older) and had a grasp of the Austrian literature that is rare among Anglo-American economists.
