Sir (Ernest) Llewellyn Woodward (1890-1971) was a British historian. He was educated at Merchant Taylor's School and Corpus Christi College, Oxford and after the First World War became a Lecturer in Modern History and fellow of All Souls College from 1919-1944 and a Fellow at New College from 1922-1939. Later he was Professor of International Relations (1944-1947) and then Professor of Modern History at Oxford. He later taught at Princeton University in the United States (1951-1962). His scope was impressively wide, his first publication being on the late Roman Empire whilst on sick leave from service in the First World War but his most famous works being on the First World War. He wrote "The Age of Reform" in the Oxford History of England.
