John Stewart talks on his biography of the social policy academic and Labour Party advisor Richard Titmuss. Titmuss, initially almost single-handedly, created the academic field of social administration (what we would now call social policy) in Britain following his appointment to the London School of Economics as its first Professor of Social Administration in 1950. Titmuss wrote extensively on health and other welfare issues.
Professor John Stewart is Emeritus Professor of Health History at Glasgow Caledonian University. John is presently working on a biography, sponsored by the London School of Economics, of Richard Titmuss.
Professor David Piachaud is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics.
