This chapter discusses the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) during the Beveridge Years (1919–1937). Specifically, it focuses on the accomplishments of Sir William Beveridge as Director of LSE including the offering of the commerce degree and creation of a coat of arms and motto for the school. Beveridge also tried hard to increase the involvement of both teachers and Governors in the running of the school. He activated the largely dormant Professional Council and gave it a Standing or Office Committee. Three members of the Professional Council were given seats at the Court of Governors. Thus, the structure of governance began to emerge.

Keywords:   London School of Economics and Political Science, William Beveridge, commerce degree, coat of arms, Professional Council, Court of Governors, LSE
