Résumé:

This paper will examine the close personal relations between three of the most prominent British social reformers of the twentieth century. Tawney and Temple were at school together; all three overlapped as students in the same Oxford college; Tawney married Beveridge’s sister; they remained friends and colleagues for the rest of their lives. What do these personal relationships tell us about social politics in Britain between 1900-1950? Can the Welfare State be reduced to three interlocking biographies? And in what ways was the English intellectual and political elite different from the French elite in this period?
