Alys Russell (1867-1951): A Life in Education and Public Service explores Alys Russell’s educational activities and public service. It traces her early initiatives for women’s education, her involvement in the youth department of the British Women’s Temperance Association, the Council of Bedford College, Schools for Mothers, suffrage activities, and the British and International Federations of University Women. In highlighting Alys’ public service, the project aims to redress accounts that focus over-ridingly on Alys’ relation to Bertrand Russell and obscure Alys’ contribution to public life.
