Biographical / historical:

Lloyd B. Saville (circa 1915-1988) was an educator, researcher, scholar and economist who specialized in economic history and theory, money and banking, statistics and insurance. However, it was his studies of regional economic development, many of them done in Italy, that led him to earn an international reputation in his field.

Saville's career at Duke University spanned the years 1946-1979 and encompassed teaching, administration, research, and publication. He received several top research awards in the 1950s and 1960s, among them a Ford Foundation Fellowship for study in Rome; a Guggenheim Fellowship; a Fulbright Professorship; and a Duke Endowment Grant.

Saville's publications include several books on Italian economic development and numerous articles on regional economic development for professional journals.

Saville was also an accomplished amateur photographer whose interests also included music, nature study, and mountain climbing.
