BENJAMIN WAUGH (1839-1908), English social reformer, was born at Settle, Yorkshire, on the 10th of February 1839.
An inquiry was demanded by Waugh, and the commission of inquiry, which included Lord Herschell and others, completely vindicated the society and its director.
Waugh had given up pastoral work in 1887 to devote his whole time to the society, and he retained his post as director until 1905, when the state of his health com - pelled his retirement.
Waugh edited the Sunday Magazine from 1874 to 1896, but he had otherwise little leisure for literary work.
