Former Yorkshire and North Derbyshire Secretary of the National Union of General and Municipal Workers) writes:-

I HAD the privilege of a long business and personal association with Mr. Seebohm Rowntree, for whom I had the greatest admiration. It is not long since he invited me to stay with him when I was visiting London, and he never failed to write to me each Christmas.

He was a very great man, and those who knew him were helped by his fine character and understanding.
