The economist and government adviser, Sir Charles Carter, was born in Rugby in 1919. A Quaker and pacifist, Carter was a conscientious objector during World War II. He was educated at Rugby and graduated from St John's College, Cambridge in 1945 with a first in mathematics and economics. At Cambridge, he was a student of John Maynard Keynes.

Carter began his career as a lecturer in statistics at Cambridge from 1945 to 1951, then moved to Queen's University, Belfast, as Professor of Applied Economics from 1952 to 1959. In 1958, he assumed the Stanley Jevons Chair of Political Economy at Manchester University, before becoming the founding Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lancaster in 1963. Knighted in 1978, Sir Charles Carter was Chairman of the Northern Ireland Economic Council from 1977 to 1987 and Joint President of the Policy Studies Institute from 1991 to1997.
