Henry Sumner Maine

a.k.a. Sir Henry James Sumner Maine

Author Code: EHMX

Born: Aug. 15, 1822 - Kelso, Roxburgh, Scotland

Died: Feb. 3, 1888 - Cannes, France

Educated at Christ's Hospital, London and Pembroke College, Cambridge, Maine became a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge and finally its master; a post he held at his death. He taught civil law at Cambridge from 1847 to 1854. Maine also lectured on Roman law at the Inns of Court in London. His lectures formed the basis of his work Ancient Law: Its Connection With the Early History of Society, and Its Relation to Modern Ideas (1860). As a legal member of the governor general of India's council (1863-69), Maine was primarily responsible for the codification of Indian law. He also held the posts of professor of jurisprudence at Oxford and professor of International Law at Cambridge. Among his many other works are Village Communities (1871), Early History of Institutions (1875) and Dissertation on Early Laws and Customs (1883).
