Henry Sidgwick was an English utilitarian philosopher and economist. He was one of the founders and first president of the Society for Psychical Research, a member of the Metaphysical Society, and promoted the higher education of women. His work in economics has also had a lasting influence.

He wanted these words to be written on his grave:"Let us commend to the love of God with silent prayer the soul of a sinful man who partly partly tried to do his duty. it is by his wish that I say over his grave these words and no more".

He also founded the Newnham College in Cambridge in 1875.Newnham College is a women-only constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England.It was the second Cambridge college to admit women after Girton College. The co-founder of the college was Millicent Garrett Fawcett.

Henry Sidgwick was the first cousin of Ellen Wordsworth Crofts, second wife of Sir Francis Darwin, a Fellow and Lecturer at Newnham College.
