The Origins of the Shaw Society 

The Shaw Society is the only Shaw society that dates from Shaw’s lifetime. It was founded by Dr Fritz Loewenstein, a Jewish refugee from Germany in the 1930s, who, in November 1941, finally wore down Shaw’s opposition to his plan for a society to promote Shavian ideas. He called the inaugural meeting, putting back the official date of its foundation to Shaw’s 85th birthday, 26 July 1941.
