1914. 1898. Beatrice Potter Webb (1858–1943)

Beatrice Potter was born in an upper-class Victorian home in Gloucester. Ill as a child, she received her education informally at home. She married Sidney Webb of the Fabian Society, and for 50 years they were leaders of major social and economic reform movements in England. This journal is the result of a trip the Webbs took to the United States in 1898. Mrs. Webb emphasizes her investigations of local governments in the cities of New York, Boston, Cincinnati, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco. Interviews with two future Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, are included. Mrs. Webb’s descriptions and impressions of the country and of the many prominent people she sought out are perceptive but somewhat provincial and condescending in tone.
