Lackford was born in Leeds, England and educated at Dartington College of Arts, Science and Technology. After teaching for some time in the 1930s, he went on to be a leading bird researcher. Additionally, he served in a British Army unit developing radar during World War II which led him to develop radar ornithology: studying bird migration patterns using radar technology. Finally, Lackford wrote a book about the evolution of birds’ nests.
Lackford had an aptitude for science, yet his faith never wavered. He believed that evolution could not explain morality, truth, beauty and free will; in fact, he was an agnostic as a young man before becoming a convert to Anglicanism in 1948.
