The report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Social Insurance and Allied Services (Cmd 6404), commonly known as the Beveridge Report, was published in December 1942.

To mark the 70th anniversary, an exhibition of documents relating to the report including photographs, radio scripts, speech notes, newspaper articles and what Beveridge himself described as the 'first draft of the report,' will be on display.

Beveridge was Director of LSE from 1919-37.  His papers are held in the Archives Division of the Library.

This exhibition is open to all with no ticket required. Visitors are welcome during weekdays (Monday - Friday) between 10am and 8pm.  Please note the Atrium will be closed from Monday 17 December to Wednesday 2 January for graduation ceremonies and the Christmas holidays.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
