This talk is at The Haslemere Museum
Norman Angell lived the last years of his eventful 95 year life in Stone Cottage, Fernden Hill, Haslemere. He was an astonishingly progressive thinker, publishing “The Great Illusion” in 1910. He was anti-war (rather than a pacifist) and, before the First World War, argued that in a war, victors are as damaged as the defeated. He was knighted in 1931 (following a spell as a Labour MP) and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1933 for his work in creating the League of Nations. Mrs Lesley Shaikh, who is Head of St Ives School Haslemere, will be guiding us through the career and influence of this remarkable man.
