Gladstone Centenary Essays

By David Bebbington; Roger Swift | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

This collection of essays arises from some of the papers delivered at the Gladstone Centenary International Conference held at Chester College in July 1998, which brought together almost one hundred scholars from Britain, Europe, North America, Australia and Japan in commemoration of the centenary of the death of William Ewart Gladstone. The conference represented a joint initiative between St Deiniol's Library, Hawarden, and the Centre for Victorian Studies at Chester College, and its success, of which the present volume is, we trust, an appropriate testament, owes much to the support and encouragement provided by several individuals and institutions. In particular, we wish to express our gratitude to Sir William Gladstone, the great-grandson of the Prime Minister, for his kindness and generosity in helping to make the conference possible; to the Reverend Peter Francis, Warden and Chief Librarian of St Deiniol's Library; and to Professor Michael Wheeler and the Trustees of St Deiniol's Library for their endorsement and help. We are also indebted to the Royal Historical Society and Primary Source Media for co-sponsoring the conference. We also gratefully acknowledge the help of Sir William Gladstone, of the staff of St Deiniol's Library, Hawarden, and of the Flintshire Record Office in the preparation of the illustrations for this volume. Thanks are due to each of them and also to the following for permission to reproduce illustrations: the Mary Evans Picture Library and the University of Edinburgh Library. Our greatest debt, however, is to the contributors themselves for providing new insights into the life, both public and private, of the ‘Grand Old Man’.
