One of the most prominent figures in the history of American economics, Francis Amasa Walker (1840-1897) served in the Union Army during the Civil War; he was eventually brevetted as a brigadier general.

During his career, he was the first lecturer on economics at Johns Hopkins (1876), Superintendent of the U.S. Census (1880), an economics professor at Yale (1872-1889), U.S. Commissioner of Indian Affairs (1871-1872), President of the American Statistical Association (ASA) and first President of the American Economic Association (AEA), which awards the "Francis A. Walker Medal" to leading economists for lifetime achievements every five years.
