A talk by Alan Freke of Frenchay Museum
“ An Utterly Good Man –The life of F. D. Maurice” , an academic , Victorian vicar and author, who established colleges for the education of both women and men, believed that capitalism was rooted in greed and helped to give legal status to co-operative bodies such as working men’s associations. He was a member of the Royal Commission discussing the Acts of law which gave police the right to arrest prostitutes, forcibly medically examine them and confine them in a lock up hospital.
“Professor Maurice remained firmly and conscientiously opposed to the Acts to the very last.” Close, Francis (1872).
