Prof Phyllis Deane devoted her life to studying the history of economic growth from the 17th century to modern times.

Her early life was in Scotland, where she was a student at Hutchesons' Grammar School in Glasgow, and then Glasgow University, where she graduated with an MA.
Between 1941 and 1948, she worked at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and then joined the Colonial Office, before coming to Cambridge University as a lecturer in 1950.
Between then and 2001, when she was in her 80s, she taught, carried out research and wrote about economics.
She was first a lecturer in the department of Applied Economics and then the Faculty of Economics and Politics, and in 1981 became Professor of Economic History. She edited the Economic Journal for seven years and was President of the Royal Economic Society for two years.
Her list of publications is vast, stretching from 1945 to 2001 when, at the age of 83, she wrote The life and times of Neville Keynes, an academic bestseller.
In later life she was made a Distinguished Fellow of the History of Economics Society.
Prof Deane died peacefully at Cottenham Court care home, aged 93.
She was an honorary fellow at Newnham College, which is arranging a memorial service for her.
