It has often been observed that the early years of the 20th century witnessed a significant and noticeable rise in both the quantity and quality of British analysis. Invariably in these accounts, the name of G.H. Hardy (1877–1947) features most prominently as the driving force behind this development. But how accurate is this interpretation? This paper attempts to reevaluate Hardy's influence on the British mathematical research community and its analysis during the early 20th century, with particular reference to his relationship with the London Mathematical Society.
