Leonid Hurwicz, LSE, and Kaldor

We all know that L Hurwicz just won the Nobel prize in economics. We also know that London School of Economics is an excellent school for learning economics. And finally, we know Nicholas
Kaldor was a famous economist.

I guess not everybody knows that Hurwicz was a student of Kaldor at LSE. It would be interesting to find out whether Hurwicz had studied under Hayek or not as they were both there around the same time in the 1930s.

More on Hurwicz here. Hat tip to David Warsh for the pointer.
