Beatrice Webb

Person  Female  Born 22/1/1858  Died 30/4/1943

Social scientist, economist and political reformer. Born as Beatrice Potter in Gloucestershire. Charles Booth was her cousin. Married Sidney Webb in 1892 - the picture source quotes her very uncomplimentary early description of him. They had no children and later in life she described the LSE and the New Statesman, both of which they had founded, as their metaphorical children. Died at home in Hampshire.
