Beatrice Webb, Social Reformer, Socialist and Social Scientist and her Capitalist Father Richard Potter

10 February 2020

The relationship between Beatrice Webb (1858-1943) and her father Richard Potter was not only affectionate, Professor Channon argues, but less deferential than was usual at the time and had a profound and positive effect on Beatrice’s world view and career.
