JOSEPH ROWNTREE 
1836-1925 

In this house lived a man whose life was to exercise 
a profound influence upon a City of which he became 
in 1911 an Honorary Freeman. 

A pioneer of research and reform in social policy 
and industrial relations, he became Chairman of the 
Company which bears his name and established three 
Trusts which seek to continue his work through the 
generous resources he gave to them.
