Beatrice Potter Webb was an English sociologist, economist, socialist, labour historian and social reformer. Her husband Sidney became Baron Passfield in 1929. Along with her husband and numerous others, Webb co-founded the London School of Economics and Political Science and played a crucial role in forming the Fabian Society. In 1882, she had a relationship with Radical politician Joseph Chamberlain, by then a Cabinet minister, but the relationship ultimately failed. In 1890 Beatrice Potter was introduced to Sidney Webb, whose help she sought with her research. In 1891 Beatrice published The Co-operative Movement in Great Britain, based on her experiences in Lancashire. They married in 1892, and until her death 51 years later shared political and professional activities. The Webbs became active members of the Fabian Society. With the Fabians' support, Beatrice Webb co-authored books and pamphlets on socialism and the co-operative movement including The History of Trade Unionism in 1894 and Industrial Democracy in 1897.
