The book that he and Bertha Swirles wrote Theory of Probabilitywhich first appeared inplayed an important role in the revival of the Bayesian view of probability. Jeffreys became a fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge in At the University of Cambridge he taught mathematics, then geophysics and finally became the Plumian Professor of Astronomy. He married another mathematician and physicist, Bertha Swirles —in and together they wrote Methods of Mathematical Physics.

One of his major contributions was on the Bayesian approach to probability also see Jeffreys prioras well as the idea that the Earth’s planetary core was liquid. From to he was established as Director of the International Seismological Summary further known as International Seismological Centre.


The textbook Probability Theory: The Logic of Science, written by the physicist and probability theorist Edwin T. Jaynesis dedicated to Jeffreys. The dedication reads, “Dedicated to the memory of Sir Harold Jeffreys, who saw the truth and preserved it.

Like most of his contemporaries, Jeffreys was a strong opponent of continental drift as proposed by Alfred Wegener. For him, continental drift was “out of the question” because no force even remotely strong enough to move the continents across the Earth’s surface was evident.
