Summary This book tells the personal and political story of a previously uncelebrated man, whose interests and gifts contributed greatly to the transformation of social welfare in Britain in the early part of the twentieth century. In 1905 Frederic D?Aeth, a disillusioned clergyman, came to Liverpool as the first paid lecturer in the newly formed School for Social Work Training, and went on to become the Director of Reports for the Liverpool Council for Voluntary Aid. Margaret Simey shows how, in this capacity, D?Aeth achieved the near impossible task of co-ordinating the welter of diverse charitable.
