British anthropologist, educated at the University of California at Berkeley under Kroeber and Lowie. In the US he became influenced by the growing movement for an ecological anthropology, and after his return to Britain, he was for many years the leading proponent of ecological anthropology in British anthropology. At University College London, where he received a position in 1945, he built up an American-style enclave within British academia. Forde cooperated closely with Radcliffe-Brown, Fortes and Evans-Pritchard, and contributed to the structural functionalist school.
