Mackinder, Halford John, 1861-1947

Sir Halford John Mackinder was born on the 15 February 1861 in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England. He was educated at Gainsborough Grammar School; Epsom College, and Christ Church, Oxford. After leaving Oxford he read for the bar at the Inner Temple in London and qualified as a barrister in 1886.

In 1885 Mackinder became a lecturer for the Oxford university extension movement - formed to give educational opportunities to people unable to attend a university - and he lectured throughout the country on what he called 'the new geography' (his concept of geography as a bridge between the natural sciences and the humanities).
