This chapter discusses the development of social science education at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) during the Beveridge Years (1919–1937). It details the establishment of the Department of Social Science and Administration in 1912 and how the unfolding of social sciences is bound up with the history of LSE. It also describes how at LSE the great men and women were the teachers, who were both models of public speaking and caring mentors to their students.

Keywords:   London School of Economics and Political Science, social sciences, William Beveridge, LSE
