Frank Podmore

Frank Podmore (1856 - 1910) was a British writer and founding member of the Fabian Society. Podmore was educated at Oxford and in 1883 joined the socialist debating society that had been set up by Edith Nesbit and Hubert Bland. In 1884 it was Podmore who proposed that the group be renamed the Fabian Society. Podmore was keenly interested in and wrote extensively on spiritualism, but is now best remembered for his Biography of Robert Owen published in 1906.
