Scheme for a State Bonus (1918)

  • Chapter

Abstract

Dennis Milner was born into a staunchly Quaker family in 1892 at Hartford, Cheshire. He was educated at a Quaker school in York. Along with many other Quakers, Milner served for a period in an Ambulance Unit in the First World War. He then worked as an engineer in the Rowntree (chocolate) factory in York, which again had strong Quaker connections. There, Milner developed his interest in social and political issues, leaving Rowntree in 1918 to work full time on developing the State Bonus scheme which had possibly first occurred to him some three and a half years previously. He died in 1956.
