Description

Hugh Quigley (6 August 1895 – 30 January 1979) was a Scottish economist, statistician, farmer, and author. His diary of his service with the 12th Royal Scots Regiment of the British Army at Passchendaele and the Somme during the First World War was published in 1928. A scholar of Italian literature and Carnegie research fellow at the University of Glasgow, he later entered the electricity industry where he became a senior economist and statistician and advocated the greater use of Scottish hydro-electric power distributed through the newly constructed National Grid. He wrote on German history, the electricity industry, the advantages of central planning in housing and industry, and on topographical subjects such as the two books he produced on his native Scotland.
