Samuel Augustus Barnett
Birth: Feb. 8, 1844
Bristol Unitary Authority
Bristol, England
Death: Jun. 17, 1913
Greater London, England

English clergyman, philanthropist, and social worker. After ordination he went to the notorious East End of London where he joined in the attack upon the unsanitary and terrible housing conditions there. He founded the universities' settlement (places where richer students could live alongside, learn about and contribute to the welfare of much poorer people), Toynbee Hall. The settlement was visited in 1888 by American reformer Jane Addams, who returned to the USA inspired to create similar facilities there. Addams opened the first Hull House in Chicago a year later. In 1893 he moved to Bristol as a Canon Residentiary, and in 1906 he became a Canon of Westminster. One of his most famous works is "Practicable Socialism," written in conjunction with his wife, Henrietta Octavia Weston, social reformer and a co-worker of Octavia Hill and also a philanthropist like her husband.
