George Macaulay Trevelyan (February 16, 18761962) was an English historian, son of Sir George Otto Trevelyan and great-nephew of Thomas Macaulay.


After attending Harrow School, where he specialized in history, Trevelyan studied at Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1898 he won a fellowship at Trinity with a dissertation which was published the following year as England in the Age of Wycliffe. Trevelyan lectured at Cambridge until 1903 at which point he left academic life. In 1927 he returned to the University to take up a position as Regius Professor of Modern History. In 1940 he was appointed as Master of Trinity College and served in the post until 1951 when he retired. Trevelyan declined the Presidency of the British Academy but served as Chancellor of Durham University from 1950 to 1958. Trevelyan College at Durham University is named after him. He was also elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1925, a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1950, and was an honorary doctor of many universities including Cambridge.
