The Conduct of Philanthropy: William Sutton Trust, 1900-2000
The CONDUCT OF PHILANTHROPY reassesses the place of charity in 20th century English housing through a rich and detailed case study. It presents an analysis of the William Sutton Trust, a philanthropic housing agency founded in 1900 and the wealthiest most ambitous housing trust of the age. The 'failure' of philantropy in the 20th century has often been attributed to its narrow financial base and its parochial outlook. The William Sutton Trust, by contrast, was a formidable, well-endowed and professional philoanthropic body. It was not, however, regarded as an exemplar. Rather; its size and scope were presented as a threat to social and political stability and to proper conduct of philanthropy.
