On the 75th anniversary of the release of the Beveridge report, LSE Library is hosting an exhibition showing off its collections relating to welfare: from the Poor Laws to Beveridge to Universal Credit.
Sir William Beveridge was Director of LSE from 1919 to 1937 and LSE Library holds his archives and papers. The exhibition draws on this material and shows how his report helped to transform welfare provision after the War. It also shows what was in place before the report was released.
This is one of a series of ongoing exhibitions hosted by LSE Library which utilise its world class special collections in order to provide food for thought for all.
The exhibition is held in the Library Gallery by the main entrance to the building. It is small enough to explore in a lunchtime, but you can also arrange longer visits for groups that include a tour with the exhibition curator - just get in touch to arrange.
