Since its foundation in the autumn of 1847 the Society has analysed the major changes that have taken place in population, employment, legal and administrative systems and social services No other single source provides such a comprehensive picture of social change over such a long period'. - from "The Spirit of Earnest Inquiry" by Mary E. Daly, 1997
