The Shaw Society was founded on 26 July 1941, Bernard Shaw’s eighty-fifth birthday. At first he would have nothing to do with the idea and it was his reluctant letter of acquiescence that decreed that we should become “…a rallying point for the cooperation and education of kindred spirits and a forum for their irreconcilable controversies” which is now incorporated into the Constitution of the Society. On 26th July 2021 we celebrated our eightieth birthday.
