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).
