The New Statesman and Nation (London, UK)

7 February 1948

Founded in 1913 by Sidney and Beatrice Webb with the support of George Bernard Shaw and other prominent members of the Fabian Society, the left-leaning The New Statesman was edited by Clifford Sharp (1913-1928), Charles Mostyn Lloyd (1928-1930), and Kingsley Martin (1930-1960). After merging with the Liberal weekly The Nation and Athenaeum in 1931, it changed its name to the New Statesman and Nation, a title it retained until 1964.
