ICONIC IMAGES FROM LSE ARCHIVES PICTURES FROM ALUMNI WELCOME
LSE’s first Nobel Playwright, novelist and polemicist George Bernard Shaw (1865-1950) was a founder of LSE. This picture, taken in 1931 on Table Mountain, South Africa, is from his extensive photographic collection, currently being conserved and digitised by the School in partnership with the National Trust (see page 31). Shaw was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925. He is one of 16 LSE staff or alumni who have received prizes in economics, peace and literature – including this year’s Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences, LSE Professor Christopher Pissarides.
